Westminster is proud to sponsor Figen Murray’s highly sought after Dissertation on Counter Terrorism and Protect Duty Legislation

Figen Murray is the mother of Martyn Hett, who at 29 years was killed in the Manchester Arena terrorist attack in May 2017 and is the force behind Martyn’s Law, named after her son Martyn, now more officially known as the Protect Duty legislation that will require many businesses to formally assess and take measures to address terrorism risks for the first time. The Home Office estimates that 650,000 UK businesses could be affected by Protect Duty.

Figen Murray’s highly sought after Dissertation on Counter Terrorism and Protect Duty Legislation is set for exclusive release in the Counter Terror Business Magazine, in April 2022.

Figen Murray’s resolute campaign for legislation requiring venues to have to put in place and maintain appropriate security measures against terror attacks, has been truly inspirational and for which she was awarded an OBE in 2021.

She is a regular speaker to schools and associations on terrorism and her dissertation, as part of her Master’s degree in counter-terrorism, has been keenly anticipated and will be a highly sought after document within the security sector.

Westminster is proud to have long been supportive of Figen’s aims and pleased to be partnering with the Counter Terror Business Magazine to exclusively release Figen Murray’s MSC Dissertation, titled: “Investigating the capacity of the proposed Protect Duty legislation to enhance Public Safety through social attitude change”.
