Foreign Fighters, Homegrown Terrorism, and the Prevention of Violent Extremism

Recent events in the Middle East, Europe, Africa, and the United States have highlighted the importance of the multifaceted challenge that violent extremism has come to represent.

What underlies the complex foreign fighters phenomenon, notably in the aftermath of the campaign to retake Mosul and the persistent crisis in Syria? How is homegrown terrorism evolving and how can it be tackled? Finally, what viable policy options can be considered to address the impact of the current wave of violent radicalization? 

This panel discussion, co-organized by the Geneva Centre for Security Policy (GCSP) and Carnegie Council, brings together world leading experts on the topic to share their views and assessments.

Ali Soufan is chairman and CEO of The Soufan Group and a former FBI supervisory special agent. He is author of the best-selling The Black Banners: The Inside Story of 9/11 and the War Against al Qaeda, for which he won the 2012 Ridenhour Book Prize.

Seamus Hughes is the deputy director of the Program on Extremism at George Washington University's Center for Cyber and Homeland Security.

Mohammad-Mahmoud Ould Mohamedou will lead the discussion. He is the deputy director and academic dean at the GCSP.
