Iraq and the ‘war on terror’
One of the main areas of ORG's work over the past five years has been an intensive analysis of international political violence and the factors that drive it. This has focussed particularly on the effects of the 9/11 attacks and the subsequent US-led 'war on terror'. Through a series of briefing papers and seminars, ORG has charted the development of the 'war' and its numerous effects, not least the tens of thousands of civilians killed.
The critical assessments of the ‘war on terror’ that have been ongoing from ORG for years are now shared by many other analysts, not least the effect of the Iraq invasion on the strength of radical paramilitary organisations. Beyond this, though, ORG's work is concentrated on exploring alternatives to current policies, including those that address some of the core factors involved in ensuring the continuing strength of al-Qaida and its many associated groups.
