The near-daily litany of violence perpetrated by violent extremist groups like al-Qaeda, ISIS and Boko Haram illustrates the dearth of understanding about how militant organizations tap into social discord to advance their campaigns, the U.S. Institute of Peace notes:
The inaugural RESOLVE Network Fall Forum will feature discussions of preliminary recommendations from the network secretariat, which is based at USIP in Washington. The event will include keynote remarks, panel discussions and opportunities for researchers, practitioners and policymakers to connect. Speakers and panelists will include affiliated researchers, policy experts and guest speakers, with contributions from partner organizations in the Balkans, South and Central Asia, Horn of Africa, Europe and North America.
Join the U.S. Institute of Peace and the RESOLVE Network on Thursday, September 29, as they convene researchers from around the world to help set priorities for policy-relevant research to identify effective responses.
