Beyond Kinetics: Advancing Civil-Military Partnership in Preventing/Countering Violent Extremism

Files

Description

ISIS and its affiliate organizations have recently suffered significant military losses in Syria, Iraq, North and West Africa as well as the broader Lake Chad Region. As important as these military achievements are, they signal neither the end of ISIS and its affiliates nor the defeat of their extremist ideologies. Instead, they usher in an increasingly diffuse and unpredictable phase in the global war on terror. This panel discussion explores how the United States, Pakistan, Mali and Nigeria have experienced and learned from the changing phases of extremism, focusing mainly on what has worked and what hasn’t.

This event is sponsored by the Clarke Forum for Contemporary Issues in collaboration with the Carlisle Scholars Program at the U.S. Army War College.

Panelists include U.S. Army War College representatives Muhammad Umer Bashir, Pakistan Army; Casey Miner, United States Army; and Yssouf Traore, Mali Army. Dickinson representative include Margee Ensign, president; Jacob Udo-Udo Jacob, professor, and Shawn Diniz ’18.
