Beyond collective grief and emotional reactions to the atrocities of March 15, Massey University academics with expertise in security will share their views how we might understand Regional director for the College of Humanities and Social Sciences in Wellington Dr Germana Nicklin says many New Zealanders still struggle to make sense of the Christchurch attacks.

“For most of us, now over a month since those terrible attacks, life has returned largely to normal. And yet these are not normal times,” says Dr Nicklin. “Our feelings may still be raw. We may feel a need to understand and help prevent such an attack from happening again.

“This lunchtime series provides a space for people to reflect on, and gain deeper insights into, some of the societal issues brought to light by the attacks. Delivered by academics from Massey University in Wellington who are researching and teaching in a range of relevant areas, these talks draw on the latest research, covering human rights, social media, security and religion, self-care and counter-terrorism.”
