Political and Legal Responses to Terrorism in Europe Discussed at Duquesne University Lecture

Dr. Pasquale Annicchino will discuss European legal issues and freedom of religion in contemporary societies for the latest installment of Duquesne University’s Raymond J. Kelley Endowed Chair Distinguished Speaker in International Relations Series.

Annicchino, a research fellow at the Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies at the European University Institute in Florence, Italy, and an adjunct law professor at St. John’s University in New York City, will present Europe in the Face of Terror: Political and Legal Responses on Thursday, Nov. 10, from 12:15 to 1:30 p.m. in Room 644 of College Hall.

“This lecture will help Americans learn about some of the ways in which other liberal democracies are responding to terrorism, from both legal and political perspectives,” said Kelley Endowed Chair Dr. Clifford Bob, chair of political science in the McAnulty College and Graduate School of Liberal Arts.

The Raymond J. Kelley Endowed Chair Distinguished Speaker in International Relations Series, which launched in 2013, typically features two to three presentations each year. The event is free and open to the public.

The series is co-sponsored by the Department of Political Science and the School of Law. For more information, contact the political science department at 412.396.6485.
