Congressional Brief: Preventing terrorism in the U.S., successes, failures, and recommendations

ISD, along with the Program on Extremism at the George Washington University and the Brookings Institution, hosted a Congressional briefing on “Preventing terrorism in the U.S., successes, failures, and recommendations.”

A panel of experts debated different components of a comprehensive approach to preventing terrorism in the United States. They explored topics including the development of overarching policy frameworks, the nexus of technology and terrorism, and the importance of civil society in preventing and countering terrorism. The Program’s senior research fellow, Haroro Ingram, moderated. The panelists included:

  • Seamus Hughes, Deputy Director, the Program on Extremism
  • Farah Pandith, Head of Strategy, Institute for Strategic Dialogue; Non-Resident Senior Fellow, Harvard University Kennedy School of Government; Adjunct Senior Fellow, Council on Foreign Relations
  • David Phillippi, Program Coordinator, Parents for Peace
  • Chris Meserole, Fellow – Foreign Policy, Brookings Institution

The Congressional Counter-Terrorism Caucus serves as a leading bipartisan voice in Congress for approaches to tackling extremism and radicalisation within the United States. It meets regularly with the goal of developing and adopting a bipartisan framework for preventing terrorism.
