dc.description.abstractOn 11 September 2001 terrorists from the amorphous transnational Al Qaeda network killed thousands of Americans and other nationals by flying planes into New York's World Trade Center, the Pentagon in Washington, and a field in Pennsylvania. A year later the United States is preparing to launch a war against the state of Iraq, emphasising the grave and imminent danger posed by Saddam Hussein's weapons of mass destruction, but animated also by a long-standing goal of 'regime change'. What explains this 'statising' of the so-called 'war against terrorism'? What risks does it pose for regional and world order? This Keynote brings together some of Australia's leading thinkers and commentators on American foreign policy, the politics of the Middle East, strategic and defence issues, and global governance to reflect on the multiple issues raised by the prospect of war with Iraq.
