Countering Violent Extremism
701 5th Ave #6100, Seattle, WA 98104, USA
The recent attack on two mosques in New Zealand is a tragic reminder that terrorism and extremism remain a global threat. Extremists are preying on a generation in the midst of an identity crisis, vulnerable to extremists’ seductive, intolerant “us” versus “them” ideology, delivered using the latest technologies. How are governments responding and are current policies poised to reduce the threat from extremism—or exacerbate it? Join the World Affairs Council for a discussion with Farah Pandith on how to inoculate communities against extremism—especially amongst youth—and a conversation about Pandith’s new book, How We Win: How Cutting-Edge Entrepreneurs, Political Visionaries, Enlightened Business Leaders, and Social Media Mavens Can Defeat the Extremist Threat. Pandith was the first-ever special representative to Muslim communities in the State Department and served in the administrations of Presidents George H.W. Bush, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama.
