In late November, a series of 10 coordinated terrorist attacks were carried out in Mumbai, India's largest city and financial capital. Almost 200 people were killed and more than 300 injured. In response to these events, two Baker Institute fellows offer their insights to help the public better understand the attacks, and strategies to fight terrorism.
Joan Neuhaus Schaan, fellow in homeland security and terrorism, fields questions about Lashkar-e-Tayyiba, the terrorist group that Indian authorities blame for the deadly events in Mumbai. (The group has denied responsibility for the attacks.)
Christopher Bronk, fellow in technology, society and public policy, outlines a joint project between Rice University and the Institute for the Study of Violent Groups in that uses cutting-edge computing applications to employ artificial intelligence and bioinformatics to analyze terrorism.
