Show Notes

As the loss of ISIS territory drives thousands of “foreign terrorist fighters” to return home, and hundreds of people convicted of terrorism-related offenses are scheduled for release over the next several years, communities worldwide are faced with rehabilitating and reintegrating people disengaging from violent extremism.

USIP hosted this discussion of how policies and programs can address trauma and reduce stigma to foster cross-cutting affiliations and social learning, enable rehabilitation, and ease reintegration for people disengaging from extremist violence.

Panelists:

Jesse Morton Founder and Co-director, Parallel Networks, and co-author of the forthcoming report, “When Terrorists Come Home: The Need for Rehabilitating and Reintegrating America’s Convicted Jihadists”

Dr. James Gordon Founder and Executive Director, The Center for Mind-Body Medicine

Dr. Sousan Abadian Franklin Fellow, Office of International Religious Freedom, Department of State

Stacey Schamber Senior Program Officer, International Civil Society Action Network

Colette Rausch, moderator Senior Advisor, U.S. Institute of Peace
