PANEL: Countering Violent Extremism, Five Years In

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In the summer of 2011, the Obama administration issued a new “countering violent extremism” strategy based on building relationships with communities that are likely to be recruiting grounds for extremists. Local police would be at its center. CVE enjoys bipartisan support. Researchers have said it holds promise. Critics say it’s based on simplistic ideas of radicalization and that it stigmatizes Muslim communities. This panel looks at CVE from the perspectives of participants, critics and researchers. It also looks at such efforts aimed at a different population — white supremacists.
