Wondering how governments ought to respond to terrorism? Heartily sick of the hyperbole?
At TEDxCanberra 2014, Stephen Coleman spoke about quantifying the actual threat, and what might be done. Now, his talk has been adapted and published by The Ethics Centre.
Here's how reasonable people, and reasonable governments, respond.
ISIS says the Paris terror attack targeted western values. Waleed Aly and others are encouraging us as individuals to come together in response. But what should lawmakers do? Stephen Coleman explores.

News about TEDxCanberra for 2015, and our future events.
Producing a conference of the quality of TEDxCanberra for five years and eight events on the volunteer labor of a dedicated, small group of people is something we're extremely proud of. The team of unpaid volunteers that puts together TEDxCanberra every year are an amazing, diverse, and incredibly dedicated group of people who give up a significant portion of their lives outside of their day jobs in order to do so

Just an update on Khadija Gbla - The Guardian has done two pieces on her and the fight against FGM in the past two days. Her talk at TEDxCanberra 2014 gets a mention in today's piece.

Khadija Gbla is trying not to think about the fact she and her son, due in February, could die during labour due to medical ignorance about complications from female genital mutilation
