Professor Bruce Hoffman is an internationally renowned expert on counter-terrorism and national security and has been studying terrorism and insurgency for almost half a century.

Please join us for a lunchtime event where Professor Hoffman will speak in conversation with Lydia Khalil, Lowy Institute Research Fellow on Transnational Challenges. Professor Hoffman will discuss his latest book, God, Guns, and Sedition, which traces the trajectory of far-right terrorism in the United States, and assesses its present-day dangers, its relationship with mainstream politics, and the harm it poses to US and global security.

In addition to his latest book, he is also the author of the acclaimed Inside Terrorism.
