I sat down at Chatham House with Ambassador Roger Carstens, US Special Presidential Envoy for Hostage Affairs, Amy Manson, President of Kari Corp and Board Member of Hostage US and Tim Lambon of Crisis24.

Where does it happen?
By whom?
How are cases resolved?
Should we pay ransoms to terrorists and criminals
And what are the challenges governments face in responding to this kind of kidnapping?
