Terror in the Twenty First Century – Al Qaeda, ISIS and Their Affiliates

World-wide terrorist activities have had a profound economic, politic, psychological, and social impact. The response to these activities has resulted in calamitous consequences for populations throughout the world. War, destruction of societies, enormous loss of life, personal injury, displacement of people, diversion of resources, and political instability have followed in its wake. This series will attempt, by drawing upon the research and experience of experts, to explain the threats posed by terrorism and consider ways of eliminating its underlying causes.

March 7 – The Evolution of Al-Qaeda
Barack Mendelsohn, Associate Professor of Political Science and Coordinator of the Middle Eastern and Islamic Studies Program at Haverford College, will analyze the current state of the al Qaeda threat and demonstrate how its power is overstated. He will argue that the diminution of al Qaeda’s power requires a more nuanced response on the part of the United States.
