Leeds student discusses the future of aviation security

A PhD student in the School of Law was one of 17 UK-based researchers who recently took part in a special workshop on aviation security which was held in New Jersey.

Genevieve Lennon is in the fourth year of her PhD at Leeds and is currently a Lecturer in Law at the University of Dundee. She studied for her senior status LLM at the University of Leeds, graduating in 2007 with first class honours having been awarded the BPP Prize for Torts.  Her PhD thesis, Policing counter-terrorist risk, is supervised by Professors Clive Walker and Nick Taylor.

The UK-US Creative Thinking Workshop on Aviation Security workshop was co-hosted by the Office for Security and Counter Terrorism within the Home Office and the Science and Technology Directorate of the Department for Homeland Security.

Early career researchers from all disciplines from the US and UK came together to consider what aviation security could look like in 2027.

The workshop also attracted representatives from the aviation industry, Homeland Security and the Home Office. Ms Lennon has been invited to attend the second workshop, which will be held in the UK next month.
