Event: The Changing Threat Landscape of Terrorism and Violent Extremism
This virtual panel hosted by the US National Institute of Justice will provide an overview of the current terrorist threat landscape in the USA, how it has changed in the last five to ten years, and strategies to best address this threat at the local and national levels.
Emphasis will be placed on how several key events in 2021 have shaped the way we think about research and policy in the fields of radicalization and extremism. Panelists will provide data on fluctuations of the most imminent terrorist threats posed to the U.S. over the last 10 years, why and how possible changes to the threat landscape have taken place, and ways in which the current terrorist threat should be combatted. Implications of the recently published National Strategy for Countering Domestic Terrorism on research efforts will also be discussed.
Event Date: January 18, 2022, 1:00 – 2:30 pm ET
