Today, victims of acts of terrorism are everywhere, but often remain invisible. Apart from initial declarations of condolences and solidarity, victims of acts of terrorism often do not receive adequate assistance and acknowledgement of their suffering.
Join us for a discussion with Laura Dolci, author of A Victimless Crime? A Narrative on Victims of Terrorism to Build a Case for Support.
On 19 August 2003, Laura Dolci lost her husband, Jean-Sélim Kanaan, in the suicide attack against the United Nations headquarters in Baghdad, Iraq. In her book, she convincingly combines her personal narrative with the findings of her academic research on victims of acts of terrorism and advocates for greater action by states, civil society and international organizations.
