18 May 2021
11 AM New York | 5 PM Paris | 6 PM Amman

This conversation explored the emergence of radicalization within contemporary Islam that further complicates efforts to reduce and eliminate violence in the MENA region.

Scholars tracking this issue discussed the current relationship between Salafism and jihadism and outline research projects and ideas that would better illuminate the role of political and religious doctrines on the probable outcome of efforts to transition from violence.
