Conflict And Violent Extremism In Southeast Asia: Examining Trends In Malaysia And The Philippines

Friday, February 11, 2022, 9:00am - 10:30am EST

Over the past few years, terrorist activity has declined in Southeast Asia, including in both Malaysia and the Philippines. However, despite this decline, many of the same dynamics that have historically given rise to terrorism and violent extremism remain the same. What does this mean for the evolution of violent extremism and conflict in Southeast Asia? 

As part of RESOLVE’s sixth annual Global Forum Series, join the RESOLVE Network for a conversation about recent trends related to regional and local violent extremism and conflict in Southeast Asia. Focusing on Malaysia and the Philippines, this conversation will bring together the experts behind two RESOLVE publications to explore historical ties, ongoing developments, cross-border dynamics and their implications for our understanding of current and future manifestations of violent extremism and conflict in the region.
