Strategies for Countering Violent Extremists
Monday, November 24, 2014 05:30 PM to 07:00 PM Attend Event
The world remains focused on ISIS' brutal campaign in Iraq and Syria, but in Nigeria, Boko Haram has been imposing their terrifying form of Islam in much the same way. What is the role of the UN in countering terrorism? What can civil society, religious authorities, and other non-governmental actors do to prevent the spread of terrorism?
Jean-Paul Laborde is executive director of the United Nations Counter-Terrorism Committee. He served for 22 years in the French criminal justice system and government as judge, assistant prosecutor-general, chief prosecutor, and head of the National Service for the Inspection of Penitentiary Services.
