09.15 Zelensky, Putin & Johnson: the good, the bad and the…profiling perspective
Behavioural Analysis 2022 starts as we emerge from pandemic-generated restrictions and learn to live with the virus. However, no sooner has one challenge started to diminish, another, more sinister one, has emerged – Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, with all its consequences. Whilst this conference focuses on identifying threats in crowded places, within the workplace and at venues where the general public gather, we cannot ignore the broader geopolitical landscape. Our opening address is from a criminologist – the author of the book ‘Terrorist Minds’ – who will share with delegates her profiles of Volodymyr Zelensky, Vladimir Putin and, as the conference takes place in the UK, Boris Johnson, specifically focussing on what behavioural indicators there were for their current actions.
