The Club de Madrid is happy to announce the publication of The Madrid Summit Working Paper Series.
In the months leading up to the Madrid Summit, more than two hundred of the world’s leading scholars and expert practitioners explored the issues of democracy, terrorism and security in an unparalleled process of scholarly debate. There discussions were conducted through a system of password-protected web-logs, and concluded on the first day of the summit.
Each working group issued a final paper of recommendations on which the contributions of The Madrid Summit Working Paper Series are based.
The Madrid Summit Working Paper Series consists of three volumes:
- Volume I – The Causes of Terrorism> – includes contributions on the psychological roots of terrorism, political explanations, economic factors, religion, and culture. [PDF file, 728 KB]
