The September 11 terrorist attacks had a major impact on virtually every aspect of American life—foreign, defense, and intelligence policies; economic, budgetary, political, and societal consequences; security of the American homeland; and the way Americans conduct their day-to-day lives.
The Brookings Institution has spent much of the past year examining these and other implications of that terrible day. At this forum, Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz will deliver the keynote speech, leading Brookings scholars will explain their initial findings and discuss future challenges, and Andrew Kohut, director of the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press, will announce the results of a new nationwide survey of how Americans’ views on an array of issues have changed in the year since 9/11.
In addition to the survey and discussions, the panelists will respond to questions from the audience.
