Karim-Aly S. Kassam

Karim-Aly S. Kassam believes that the so-called war on terror has hijacked international focus from more substantive issues such as conservation of the biological and cultural diversity that are essential to human survival. In trying to understand terror, Dr. Kassam and the contributors to this work seek to broaden public discourse on the perception of terror. Among his many publications, Dr. Kassam has co-edited Canada and September 11: Impact and Response. Dr. Kassam currently holds the post of International Associate Professor of Environmental and Indigenous Studies at Cornell University.
