On November 4, 2009, a special lecture by Christoph Bluth, a professor from the School of Politics and International Studies at the University of Leeds, was held in room 212 in the Veritas building. The theme of lecture was “International Terrorism and the global challenges of the Obama Administration.” Professor Bluth first talked about financial meltdown and the international consequences and then mentioned about the main causes of terrorism in Afghanistan and Pakistan, how to win the engagement with Iraq, the strategic conflict with Iran and North East Asian securities. Lee Song from the Political Science and International Relations Department said, “Before listening to Professor Bluth’s lecture, I researched about him and I found that Korea is one of his regional expertises. So it was interesting.” Lee Seoul Ki, who is also a student of Political Science and International Relations, said, “The lecture was good because the terrorism is handled as a big issue. However, it was a slightly negative point that the professor did not mention substantive strategies about terrorism.” A lot of students in Political Science and International Relations attended to listen diligently to this special lecture.
