On September 11, 2001 the world witnessed the United States under a terrible attack of terrorism. Today - exactly ten years later - human, physical and political consequences are still most present all over the world: The war in Afghanistan, the political situation in Pakistan and debates on security versus civil rights in the USA and Europe are still determined to a great extend by the impact of events ten years ago.

This International Online Conference will set a special focus on Pakistan, the USA and Germany. It will take a look at global consequences of 9/11 as well as the future challenges we will face.
