Politics and Society institute in Amman, In cooperation with Atlantic Council in Washington D.C, Discussing:
“The future of ISIS”
• THU, MAR 4, 2021 06:30 PM (GMT+2)
Experts discuss the legacy of ISIS detainees and returnees, as well as strategies against a potential resurgence in Iraq and Syria.
On October 27, 2019, then-US President Donald Trump announced that the leader of the so-called Islamic State, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, was killed in Syria in an American special operation, striking a blow against an already weakened organization.
What ISIS accomplished during the period of its rise and growth represents a “quantum leap” in the ideology, strategies, and operating theories of terrorist groups, and requires deep analysis of the organization’s expected future trajectory. The Politics and Society Institute in Amman, Jordan, and the Atlantic Council’s Scowcroft Middle East Security Initiative in Washington, DC, are pleased to co-host an expert discussion on “The Future of ISIS” on Thursday, March 4 at 11:30 a.m. ET / 6:30 p.m. GMT+2.
This panel will shed light on what opportunities exist for policymakers to deal with the legacy of ISIS detainees and returnees, as well as on strategies against a potential resurgence in Iraq and Syria.
