Anti-Terrorism, Citizenship and Security in the UK
- Start date: 01 September 2009
- End date: 31 January 2011
The experience of terrorist attacks since 9/11 has led to an increased interest in governmental responses to unconventional political violence. To date however, very little research has been conducted on the ways in which specific anti-terrorist measures impact on people's perceptions and experiences of safety.
The project seeks to address this lacuna by conducting focus groups with communities across the United Kingdom. In doing so, the aim is to shed light on three important questions:
- To what extent do there exist significant differences in attitudes to anti-terrorism measures based on an individual's geography or ethnicity?
- What implications do these attitudes - and differences therein - pose for citizenship within the UK?
- How specifically do 'ordinary' people understand the term 'security' in this particular context, and, indeed, also beyond?
