TRENDS Research & Advisory and the Orfalea Center for Global and International Studies organized a public conference on December 3 and 4, 2015 on Constructions Of Terrorism. The conference took place at the University of California, Santa Barbara, USA.

The conference debated and discussed how terrorism and acts of terrorism are understood and explained.  There were interdisciplinary contributions investigating how states and societies construct understandings and categories of terrorism and extremism.  By investigating how understandings of terrorism are constructed it is hoped we can contribute to the development of more effective strategies for countering the extremist ideas that lead to the acts labelled as terrorism.
