What We're Reading

November 2020 | 2020 RESOLVE Network Global Forum Part I

This month, RESOLVE highlights recommended readings from Part I of the 2020 RESOLVE Network Global Forum, "Violent Extremism in 2020 and Beyond." At the virtual event, Mary Beth Altier, Amarnath Amarasingam, and Colin P. Clarke discussed how the violent extremism landscape has changed in the five years since the “fall” of ISIS; how rising global instability, populism, and disinformation have altered violent extremist operations and ideologies; and the challenges of addressing violent extremism in the new threat landscape. The publications in this What We’re Reading encompass the ideas presented by the speakers at the Forum and provide insights into the theories and trends of violent extremism research.
