Counterterrorism and Identities: Canadian Viewpoints

Counterterrorism and Identities presents a detailed analysis of Canadian public opinion on questions of national security, terrorism, and counterterrorism. Where we live, our religious identification, our age, gender, and values all have an impact on our views on these issues, as do events such as 9/11 and more recent terrorist incidents in Canada and abroad. With the safety of the public and the fight against terrorism increasingly regarded as a responsibility shared between government and its citizens, it is vital that the public support our institutions and have confidence in their approaches to counterterrorism. This groundbreaking assessment is essential reading for researchers, policy-makers and community leaders looking to comprehend the mindset of Canadians on this critical aspect of our wellbeing.
