DANISH NEWSPAPER INTERVIEWS NELSON INSTITUTE DIRECTOR ON TERRORISM IN AFRICA

September 11, 2006

HARRISONBURG—Dr. J. Peter Pham, Director of the Nelson Institute for International and Public Affairs at James Madison University, is the subject of a feature interview published today by the Danish newspaper Berlingske Tidende as part of its coverage of the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. The article focuses on Dr. Pham’s analysis of Africa as the new front of the global war on terrorism.

Founded in 1749 by Ernst Henrich Berling, the centrist Berlingske Tidende is the oldest Danish newspaper still in existence; with a circulation of about 125,000 copies on weekdays, it is also one of the “big three” newspapers in Denmark falling just behind with Liberal (conservative) Jyllands-Posten and ahead of the Social Democratic-leaning Politiken newspapers.
