Sept. 25, 2001 (Lexington, Ky.) --A University of Kentucky community forum "Terror Comes Home: Political, Economic and Human Responses" took place Sept. 19 in the Student Center ballroom.

Two sets of streaming video are available. Click here for the first; click here for the second.

The forum was designed to give the Lexington community a chance to provide commentary and ask questions of UK panelists regarding the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks on New York City and Washington, D.C.

"We addressed a broad set of issues, including strategic considerations, economic concerns, and individual and community well-being, rather than focusing exclusively on the search for ways to retaliate against the aggressors," said Edward Jennings, acting chairperson of the Department of Political Science and professor in the Martin School of Public Policy and Administration, who organized the event.

Panelists included Michael Desch, associate director of the Patterson School of Diplomacy and International Commerce who specializes in national security; Sarah Goodrum, a National Institute of Mental Health postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Behavioral Science who specializes in family reactions to violent deaths; Russell Groves, former adjutant general of the Kentucky National Guard and retired U.S. Army general who taught at the Army War College; Stuart Kaufman, political science professor and a specialist in international politics whose most recent book deals with ethnic violence; and David Wildasin, Martin School of Public Policy and Administration, an economist who deals with public finance in domestic and international settings.
