The Sixth Bi-annual Symposium of the Council for Asian Terrorism Research (CATR) was held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on 5-7 November 2007. The theme for the meeting was: Understanding the Role of the Media in Facilitating the Spread of Radical Ideologies.
The meeting brought together a selected group of influential academic, government, military, and media representatives from across the Asia-Pacific region to discuss this important topic. The product of the symposium was a conference report that included academic papers by symposium panelists and the findings of a series of roundtable discussions involving regional media experts.
