You do not need to present a paper to attend the conference and we welcome nonpresenting postgraduates and interested practitioners but you will need to pay the conference fee.

The cost of the conference will be $60 (approx. £50), which will give

postgraduates one year’s membership in the Society for Terrorism

Research for 2023.

If you pay the conference fee and then cannot come to the conference, we will refund the fee minus $35 to cover the cost of subsidised STR membership for 2023. STR will not be able to refund after registration closes.
