Join the Kozmetsky Center for a two day conference to be held on April 20-21 on the topic of Countering Violent Extremism for the Transatlantic Community and Beyond. This conference will explore U.S., European, and Eurasian national perspectives on sources of violent extremism, and it will assess the success of methods employed to delegitimize extremist narratives and recruitment.
Speakers will focus analysis on the evolution of Al Qaeda and its affiliates and attempt to identify the emerging unique challenges presented by ISIS in Syria, Iraq and beyond for security of the United States, Europe, and Eurasia. Case studies of various types of violent extremist ideology (i.e., religious, political) gaining influence in Europe and Eurasia will also be included for comparative purposes.
Please see our website for information on the conference. Each lecture is scheduled for one hour (Mon: 9am, 10am, 11am, 2pm; Tues: 10am, 11am, 1pm), and the full schedule and speaker bios will be published on our website in the coming days. The event is free and open to the public.
