The Real Impact of the ‘War on Terror’


According to a recent report from a prominent US university, over 4.5 million individuals have lost their lives as a direct or indirect result of the “war on terror” launched by the United States after the 9/11 attacks. This war led to the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq, resulting in significant loss of life and widespread instability throughout the Middle East.

To discuss the true impact of this war, Nastasya Tay hosts a panel of experts including Stephanie Savell, co-director of Costs of War, a non-partisan research project based at Brown University’s Watson Institute for International and Public Affairs, Ruba Ali al-Hassani, postdoctoral research fellow at Lancaster University and co-founder of Iraqi Women Academics Network, and Michael O’Hanlon, senior fellow and director of research in foreign policy at the Brookings Institution.
