Paris has been the target of two violent terror attacks this year. In order to contribute to answering the “why there and why now” questions, this multidisciplinary roundtable gathers experts from different fields and with a different regional focus to try to highlight the tactics and strategies at play in the French case by comparing and contrasting with other cases of terror attacks, including in Russia, India and Lebanon.

Organized by the EU Program, co-sponsored by the Council of the Humanities, the Department of French and Italian, the Program in European Cultural Studies, the Program in Contemporary Politics and Society, the Ferris Seminars in Journalism, the Program in Latin American Studies, the Princeton Institute on International and Regional Studies, the Seeger Center for Hellenic Studies, the Institute for Transregional Studies, and the Woodrow Wilson School.
