It’s one of society’s great conundrums, how best to counter violent extremism, that has become a part of modern life. In this episode, we speak to one of Australia’s leading researchers into how to best reduce the risk of terrorism, Griffith University Criminology Institute Postdoctoral Research Fellow Dr Keiran Hardy. His research examines how best to respond to this growing threat, what part the media plays, and how Australia is leading the world in the volume of anti-terrorist legislation, but lagging behind other countries in investing in prevention programs.
