The Earl Babbie Research Center’s Division on the Study of Violence and Radicalization at Chapman University is pleased to host a one-day symposium: “Understanding Violent Extremism in the 21st Century.”
Violent extremism remains a serious social problem across the globe. Since September 11, 2001, there is growing concern in the US about the threat of international terror organizations such as al Qaeda and, more recently ISIS, while the number of domestic extremist groups has also grown substantially in recent years. As with any pressing social problem, there is a need for thoughtful and well informed dialogue that can help citizens reflect on the nature of these issues and the most appropriate responses to counter them.
Co-sponsors for the conference include: Wilkinson College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences, Department of Sociology, Department of Political Science, Department of Peace Studies, and the Anti-Defamation League
