The Trust has sponsored Mr Jastine Mironga of the International Centre for Policy and Conflict in Kenya so that he can attend the 30th Annual International Human RIghts Training Programme in Montreal IN June 2012.  Jastine was one of 120 participants picked from over 900 applicants and our contribution to his fees meant that he then received further sponsorship from the ICPC and from Equitas and was thus in a position to apply for a visa and confirm his place on the programme.

It is with great sadness that we announce that Professor Paul Wilkinson died last week.  Professor Wilkinson had been a Trustee of the ANT from its early days and his involvement was critical to the Trust's success, given his wide range of contacts and knowledge of the subject.  He will be sorely missed.

Paul Wilkinson was Emeritus Professor of International Relations and former Director of the University of St. Andrews Centre for the Study of Terrorism and Political Violence.  He was a world authority in International Relations and a pioneer in the study of terrorism.  Throughout his career he was a strong opponent of terrorism of all kinds and in his publications and contributions to the media, he consistently argued that the democratic response to both domestic and international terrorism should always be guided by the Rule of Law.

Professor Wilkinson was a widely quoted expert in the aftermath of September 11, 2001 and was still providing expert comment to the media following the attrocities in Norway in 2011.  He was honoured with a CBE in 2009.
