WEBINAR

REGISTER FOR THE ZOOM WEBINAR >

Join Daniel Byman, Aaron Zelin, and Robert Y. Shapiro for an Academy Forum on how different counterterrorism efforts can combine to make the threat of foreign fighters less dangerous to the United States and its allies. Dr. Byman will discuss his article from the Fall 2021 issue of Political Science Quarterly, which argues that the threat volunteers for al Qaeda, the Islamic State, and other jihadist groups pose is potentially grave, but that effective policy can profoundly reduce the danger. He argues that governments can disrupt the recruitment and travel of foreign fighters, hinder their time in war zones, and improve policing and intelligence gathering when they return.

Attendees will be able to ask questions during the webinar. Registration is required to receive a confirmation email with a unique link to join on Zoom.
