The Unmaking of Jihadism: The Current Effort to Combat Violent Extremism

July 23, 2018 • 11:00 am – 12:00 pm EDT
Please join Mitch Silber, former Director of Intelligence Analysis for the New York City Police Department; Jesse Morton, the former leader and co-founder of Revolution Muslim for which he served time in prison; and Seth G. Jones, Harold Brown Chair and Director of the Transnational Threats Project at CSIS, as they discuss the ongoing effort to counter violent extremism in the United States and abroad. The discussion will surround the issues of returning foreign fighters, counter messaging, post-prison re-integration, and other efforts related to countering violent extremism. Jesse Morton and Mitch Silber now co-direct a Virginia-based nonprofit, named Parallel Networks, that focuses on the rehabilitation of radicalized individuals.

This event is made possible through general support to CSIS.
