“What the News Doesn’t Tell You About Rising Global Conflict”

On Thursday, Oct. 26, join us at the Fox Tucson Theatre for the conversation, “What the News Doesn’t Tell You About Rising Global Conflict,” featuring former State Department Head of Counterterrorism, Ambassador Daniel Benjamin. This conversation is part of the 5th annual Downtown Series presented by the University of Arizona College of Social and Behavioral Sciences; the topic of this year’s series is “Truth and Trust in the Global Scene.”

While news coverage of conflict is plentiful, it often does not divulge the inside stories behind the rise in authoritarian rule, terrorism, and civil war that shape much of our world today. This conversation with counterterrorism expert Ambassador Daniel Benjamin reveals what the news won’t about international politics, diplomacy, and the future of global conflict in its many guises.

Benjamin will be joined by Faten Ghosn and Alex Braithwaite, both associate professors in the School of Government and Public Policy. The conversation will be moderated by Albert Bergesen, director of the School of Sociology.
