KSU Social Sciences Auditorium, Room 1021
1000 Chastain Road, Kennesaw

Kennesaw State University invites you to attend the 3rd Annual Paul and Beverly Radow Lecture on Jewish Life for a discussion about the contemporary challenges of terrorism. Many people, including reporters, politicians and commentators, focus on the incident itself and its aftermath. In his lecture, Dr. Friedmann investigates the importance of context and understanding motives that drive terrorists. In doing so, Dr. Friedmann invites attendees to explore the ideology of terrorism and examine ways to challenge its incitement.

About the Speaker
Dr. Robert R. Friedmann is founding director of the Georgia International Law Enforcement Exchange and Professor Emeritus of Criminal Justice at Georgia State University’s Andrew Young School of Policy Studies. He was the Distinguished Chair of Public Safety Partnerships (2007-2010) and served as Chair (1989-2002) of the Criminal Justice Department at Georgia State University.

About the Series
Natives of Brooklyn, Paul and Beverly Radow were married for over 65 years, raised 3 children, and instilled in them a love for humankind by encouraging each of them to help repair the world. This lecture series is sponsored by their son, Norman Radow, former chairman of the KSU Foundation and president and CEO of RADCO, a real estate development company. Funded by Norman Radow and co-sponsored by the College of Humanities and Social Sciences and the Department of Museums, Archives and Rare Books.
