Is it possible to deradicalize a terrorist? If so, how? Do these programs impact other national security initiatives, including efforts to combat terrorist recruitment? Even as attempts to rehabilitate terrorists spring up around the world, scholars and policymakers struggle to understand their effects and determine whether they help mitigate the threat of captured terrorists or counter radicalization in other populations. This seminar addresses these questions by evaluating the impact of terrorist deradicalization in Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, and beyond, exploring how these programs may shape future global counterterrorism efforts.
Please join us! Coffee and tea provided. Everyone is welcome, but admittance will be on a first come–first served basis.
