Peacebuilding Approaches to Violent Extremism

June 3 – 7, 2019

Taught by Lisa Schirch

Join us to explore why violent extremism and the threat of terror is increasing around the world.

  • Who joins extremist groups?
  • Why are extremist groups growing?
  • What can be done to prevent violent extremism and build community resilience?

This class explores cutting edge research on over 25 different approaches to preventing violent extremism. Based on ten years of field work around the world and her edited book, The Ecology of Violent Extremism, professor Lisa Schirch will host guest speakers, and engage participants with in-class simulations, case studies, and mini-lectures full of important data and research. This course will explore international and domestic US extremism, including a discussion of threats from white nationalist groups and creative responses.
