New Terrorism Threats and Counterterrorism Strategies
May 3 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am
In the post-9/11 era, the international community has made significant progress in the struggle against terrorism. However, in the last several years, terrorist groups, notably ISIS, have innovated both in their operational tactics and strategic aims, as well as in their methods of fundraising.
This conference, on new terrorism threats and counterterrorism strategies, co-hosted with the Center for a New American Security, will feature an overview of the strategic terrorism threat landscape and of the Trump administration’s counterterrorism strategies. The event will also coincide with the release of a new report on emerging terrorism financing threats. The distinguished panel of experts will explore such questions as: How are terrorist groups innovating and evolving in their tactics, strategies and fundraising today? Where are some areas where U.S. policymakers are succeeding and falling short on addressing terrorism threats? What should the Trump administration prioritize in the fight against terrorism?
