What Can Data Tell Us About Trends in Terrorism?Please join us as we announce the findings of the inaugural Global Terrorism Index.The first-ever Global Terrorism Index (GTI) provides a metric for policymakers to track terrorism and its related factors in order to inform a practical debate about the future of terrorism. It presents a new methodology to assess the countries which have been most impacted by terrorism and highlights the countries that have seen the largest growth and reduction in terrorism activity over the last 10 years.The GTI tracks changing trends in terrorism over time, as well as analyzing its different dimensions in terms of geographic activity, methods of attack, organizations involved and its national context. The index explores significant correlations with other socio-economic indicators.The GTI scores 158 countries from 2001 to 2011. Produced by the Institute for Economics and Peace, the GTI is based on data from the Global Terrorism Database (GTD), which is collected and collated by the National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism (START) headquartered at the University of Maryland.Welcome RemarksBrian FishmanCounterterrorism Research Fellow, New America FoundationGTI Results&Findings PresentationMichelle Breslauer, US Program Manager, Institute for Economics and PeaceFeatured SpeakersBill Braniff, Executive Director, STARTGary LaFree, Director, START and Professor, Department of Criminology and Criminal Justice, University of Marylandhttp://newamerica.net/events/2012/trends_in_terrorism
