Turning Point: A New Comprehensive Strategy for Countering Violent Extremism

November 15, 2016 • 1:00 – 4:00 pm EST

Please join the CSIS Human Rights Initiative for the public launch of Turning Point, the groundbreaking report from the CSIS Commission on Countering Violent Extremism (CVE), which calls for a new comprehensive strategy to address the global scourge of violent extremism in the United States and abroad. The goal of the Commission was to clearly articulate what the next United States Administration, in close collaboration with governmental and nongovernmental partners, must do to diminish the appeal of extremist ideologies and narratives. Co-chaired by Leon Panetta and Tony Blair, the Commission argues for a new paradigm - one that recognizes violent extremism as the global, generational challenge that it is and leverages all tools available to defeat it.
