The Paris Attacks: A Northeastern Forum

Paris, 7-9 January 2015: 17 people are killed in armed attacks on the offices of the Charlie Hebdo satirical magazine, at a kosher supermarket, and on the streets. The attacks raise many questions germane to our teaching, research, and learning at Northeastern University, and to our concerns as citizens: free speech versus hate speech; multiculturalism versus marginalization and extremism; Islamophobia and anti-Semitism; terrorism and the fallout from foreign policy; religion and international affairs.

On the 25th of February, 2015, the International Affairs Program, along with the Center for International Affairs and World Cultures and the Northeastern Humanities Center, organized a panel discussion examining various aspects and implications of the attacks in Paris. The speakers were Professor Moghadam (panel organizer), Dr. Max Abrahms, Dr. Shakir Mustafa, Dr. Gordana Rabrenovic, and Professor Dov Waxman. A lively and wide-ranging discussion followed. The panel discussion presentations are posted here. Dr. Mustafa’s slides may be viewed here.
