Home-grown terror and clashes within civilisations: Reflections ten years on from the July 7 2005 terror attacks in London

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The July 7th atrocities in London took the debate about terror in the UK into
unchartered territory, navigation of which seems to have been helped by continued
reference to Huntington’s thesis of the ‘Clash of Civilisations’. So in looking back
over the ten years that have followed, I wanted to reflect on that changed context and
on the challenges of giving credence to Huntington’s clash narrative
