    An expert in Indonesia and Islamic extremism, Professor Barton will look at the nature of the terrorist problem across the region- where, when, why and how. He will discuss ways to counter violent extremism, including community engagement, countering radicalisation, and rehabilitation. What has worked, and what has failed in South East Asia? The following discussion will allow for analysis of the linkages between South East Asian and South Asian terrorism - ideology, networks, tactics - as well as an assessment of counter-terrorism strategies and their global applicability.
