  • Our 12th ISS event is on the 27 March 2019, it may be of interest to some members. The panel will discuss the issue of kidnap and hostage situations. Chubb estimate that approximately 8000 kidnappings occur worldwide annually, resulting in global takings of $500m. Given such figures, kidnappings are often perceived to relate largely to high value individuals and high risk locations. However, while acknowledging that there has been an increase in kidnapping over the last six years in some of the world’s most dangerous territories, the rest of the world is not immune. For example, according to the Central Statistics Office (CSO) in Ireland, 1318 kidnappings and related incidents occurred between 2007 and 2017, peaking in 2015 with 153 incidents. That said, official statistics are not always accurate given that many kidnapping incidents are managed privately with no official interventions. Our panel will discuss this issue looking at aspects such as managing incidents, responses and negotiations.

  • We are hosting our 11th event on the 27th of February at the Royal Irish Academy (RIA) on the topic of Prison Radicalisation. We would love to see some more ASIS members there. Book your seat at https://www.eventbrite.ie/e/irish-security-series-11-prison-radicalisation-certainty-or-rarity-tickets-55447677496?aff=erelexpmlt There is a common perception that prisons are ‘schools of crime’ and in the context of extremism, schools of radicalisation. But how true is this assumption, especially given than prison design, culture and management differ so significant across the globe. Can theories of absolute certainty really stand up to scrutiny in this case? While some still argue radicalisation within prisons is a guaranteed consequence of imprisonment, more critical analysts and academics argue that prison radicalisation is more the exception than the rule. Furthermore, they argue that even if individuals are radicalised in prison it is even rarer that they are recruited into a terrorist group. Our panel will discuss this issue from this critical perspective, drawing on first-hand experience interviewing prison inmates.
