This lecture will talk about the genesis of ISIS in Iraq and Syria, how this terrorist group has metastasized and recruited across the world. From the challenges of fighting this group to the current loss of ISIS’ territory, Dr. Bessma Momani will examine how foreign fighters are now an intelligence and policing matter for Western governments. She will discuss how promoting community resilience in Western societies is not just more economical and feasible in tackling home-grown terrorism, but also how preventing violent extremism is the best offence against future home-grown threats to Western countries.
