In it they describe their study recently published in Social Policy & Social Work in Transition and say the social work curriculum must address more than child and adult safeguarding.

The full paper Ripples in a pond: Do social work students need to learn about terrorism? can be found at Social Policy & Social Work in Transition, DOI: 10.1921/4704030201, and builds also on the 2012 edited book The Cup, the Gun and the Crescent (Whiting & Birch). They will also present the paper at the Joint World Social Work Conference in Melbourne, Australia.
