McCormack Discusses Terrorism at Sept. 11 Questioning Minds Event

On September 11, Wayne McCormack, Professor of Law at the University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law, will discuss U.S. foreign policy in the decade since the September 11, 2001 terror attacks in a lecture titled  “9/11: a Decade Ago and a Decade To Be.”

McCormack has researched, written and lectured extensively on security and international legal issues. From 1997-2002, he coordinated the University of Utah’s involvement with the 2002 Olympic Winter Games, which led to security planning for major events.  He is the author of several books, including two on the law related to terrorism, and numerous articles on international and constitutional law.

In this discussion, he will assess the effectiveness of the “War on Terror,” as it has been conducted during the past 10 years, and ask a number of questions, including Where does the American public want to be in another 10 years, and how might that vision be accomplished? Is there a role for religion in building a more peaceful global community and How might the global economic crisis affect US policy toward violence?

McCormack’s Forum for Questioning Minds presentation will be held at the Salt Lake Main Library, 210 East 400 South, Fourth Floor Conference Room, at 2:00 p.m. His lecture will be followed by a brief Q & A session with audience members.  The event is free and open to the public.
