A New Approach to Counter-Radicalization (Audio)

Speaker: Pauline Neville-Jones
Presider: James M. Lindsay

Pauline Neville-Jones, minister of state for security and counterterrorism in the United Kingdom, discusses the common problems Western countries face with countering Islamic radicalization and the need to reinforce the idea that democratic freedoms and Islam are companions and not opponents.

This session was part of the symposium, UK and U.S. Approaches in Countering Radicalization: Intelligence, Communities, and the Internet, which was cosponsored with Georgetown University's Center for Peace and Security Studies and King's College London's International Centre for the Study of Radicalisation. This event was made possible by Georgetown University's George T. Kalaris Intelligence Studies Fund and the generous support of longtime CFR member Rita E. Hauser. Additionally, this event was organized in cooperation with the CFR's Civil Society, Markets, and Democracy Initiative.
