ISIS: Where Did It Come From? What Does it Believe?
April 22, 2015 *SOLD OUT*
David H. Schanzer, Associate Professor of the Practice, Sanford School of Public Policy, Duke University, and Director of the Triangle Center on Terrorism and Homeland Security
The world has been shocked by the seemingly sudden emergence of the so-called “Islamic State in Iraq and Syria” (aka ISIS). This group has changed the discourse on the post-Arab Spring Middle East, obscuring the lines between friends and enemies and opening another chapter in America’s “war on terror.” David Schanzer will address its origins and ideology, and field questions on its meaning for future U.S. policy in the region.
