Event Coverage

In this video, George Washington University Program on Extremism Deputy Director Seamus Hughes and Program on Extremism Senior Research Fellow Bennett Clifford provide a virtual talk on their new book “Homegrown: ISIS in America.” How big is the threat posed by American ISIS supporters? How many Americans have joined ISIS and how many want to return to the United States? Compared to participation by Americans in other jihadist groups, the scale of American involvement in jihadist activity today is unprecedented. This book, from one of the leading counter-terror centres, draws on first-hand interviews with former American Islamic State members and law enforcement officials who tracked them, and includes detailed analysis of the court cases against them and their social media presence. Homegrown reveals how and why ISIS was able to radicalize and recruit a new generation of jihadist sympathizers in America.

Event Coverage

In this video, West Point Combating Terrorism Center (CTC) Assistant Professor Dr. Amira Jadoon provides a virtual talk on “Understanding the Rise and Resilience of Islamic State Khorasan in Afghanistan.” Despite significant challenges, in the five years since its emergence, the Islamic State Khorasan (ISK) has managed to successfully embed itself within the Afghanistan-Pakistan region, unleash a wave of terrorism, and endure despite intensive counterterrorism efforts. Between 2015 and 2018, counterterrorism efforts against the group resulted in significant leadership losses, amounting to a total of 548 leaders, including four of its emirs. Yet, the group persists; in 2018, ISK made its mark as one of the top four most lethal groups in the world and continues to threaten Afghanistan's security in 2020.

Event Coverage

In this video, William J. Perry Center for Hemispheric Defense Studies Assistant Professor Dr. Fabiana Perera provides a virtual talk on “US-Venezuela Defense Relations.” Venezuela is the only country in Latin America that was ever able to purchase F-16s from the United States. The purchase of the aircraft is a clear indicator of the strength of the defense relationship between the two countries in 1980's and 1990's. Since then the relationship has deteriorated considerably, allowing space for extraregional actors to play increasingly important roles in the security and defense sector of one of the region's largest oil producers. This talk will examine the defense relationship between the United States and Venezuela in the period from the Cold War to the present. It will highlight key inflection points in this relationship and challenges to be addressed in the event of a transition to democracy.
