Asim QureshiCAGE Research Director
It is my genuine honour to introduce a new initiative that we begin this week at CAGE. ‘Perspectives’ is a space where we hope to invite expert voices to specifically inject much needed thoughtfulness in assessing the ways in which the global War on Terror manifests itself. From the legal but unconscionable deprivation of citizenship in countries such as the UK and Bosnia, to the mass internment of the Uyghurs in East Turkestan, there are manifold ways in which violence is perpetrated with the excuse of national security. This space will help to highlight the layers of this violence and make apparent what is often concealed.

CAGE feel it is important that we provide a space for experts to have their work and ideas engaged on their own terms. This is crucial because there are many scholars and activists working on deeply complex issues, and by being open to their perspectives, we can collectively think on how better to tackle the violence we all see.

My sincere hope for this space is that we will curate a resource for those who want to complicate their views of the world, and really get an informed understanding of how to respond to the ever increasing challenges we are collectively subject to.
