Description:

The dynamics of international violent extremism are rapidly changing. Groups like ISIS are losing physical territory, and their ambition post-caliphate is uncertain. Former fighters are returning to their home countries, creating new security risks and raising important questions about how to effectively rehabilitate and reintegrate foreign fighters. At the same time, localized insurgencies in Southeast Asia are still of concern.

Southeast Asian countries from Indonesia to the Philippines have experience preventing and countering violent extremism, but as the global dynamics change, what can be learned from long-standing efforts to prevent violent extremism in Southeast Asia? How is the landscape changing? What are the key risks emerging? Join a panel of experts to discuss the needs and opportunities for countering violent extremism in Southeast Asia.

Coffee and pastries will be provided.

Panel:

John Brandon, Senior Director for International Relations Programs, The Asia Foundation

Siniša Vuković , Assitant Professor for the Conflict Management Program and Global Policy Program, Johns Hopkins University, School of Advanced International Studies
