The 9/11 Memorial Museum presents a discussion panel Radicalization and De-Radicalization on March 21, 7-8:30pm. After 9/11, 45% of terrorism cases are thought to have involved online radicalization. In 2017, that number increased to 90%. How do groups like ISIS attract and recruit people in Western nations? How can technology be used to stop groups like ISIS from weaponizing the internet? Is it possible to rehabilitate radicalized individuals and reverse their indoctrination? Hany Farid, Dartmouth computer science professor and senior advisor to the Counter Extremism Project, and Daniel Koehler, founder and director of the German Institute on Radicalization and De-Radicalization Studies, will discuss different answers to these timely questions.
