[BRIEFING] Countering Radicalization: International Best Practices & the Role of the OSCE

  • 385 Russell Senate Office Building (map)

As terrorist threats have multiplied in their scope and scale, the 57-member Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe has sought to play an increasingly central role in facilitating international efforts to prevent and combat terrorism, including addressing conditions that create fertile ground for terrorist groups to recruit.

Radicalization expert Dr. Peter Neumann was appointed as the OSCE Special Representative on Countering Radicalization and Violent Extremism by the OSCE’s Austrian Chairmanship in 2017.  As part of his mandate, on September 27 he published an expert report on the OSCE’s activities to prevent violent extremism and radicalization that lead to terrorism, describing both best practices and possible areas for additional efforts. 

At this U.S. Helsinki Commission briefing, Dr. Neumann will present his findings, and two senior U.S. experts with extensive experience conducting and analyzing U.S. counter-radicalization programs will discuss his conclusions and provide their own views on the way ahead for U.S. efforts and international cooperation.
