Show Notes

Congress charged the U.S. Institute of Peace, an independent, bipartisan leader in reducing and preventing conflict, with convening The Task Force on Extremism in Fragile States. The Task Force has developed a proposal for a new cost-effective, evidence-based, and coordinated preventive approach. Modest U.S. investments—if they are strategic, coordinated, well-timed, and sustained—can empower communities over time to better resist extremism on their own and motivate international donors to support this cause.

Panelists:

Secretary Madeleine Albright Chair, Albright Stonebridge Group

Stephen J. Hadley Chair of the Board of Directors, U.S. Institute of Peace

Governor Tom Kean Co-Chair, Task Force on Extremism in Fragile States

Nancy Lindborg President, U.S. Institute of Peace

Michael Singh Lane-Swig Senior Fellow and Managing Director, The Washington Institute

David Ignatius, moderator Columnist and Author, The Washington Post
