9/11 to ISIS and Beyond: The Future of Terrorism (And What We Can Do About It)

September 8, 2017 9:00 AM | Sofitel Washington DC Lafayette Square, 806 15th St NW, Washington, DC, 20005

The military defeat of the Islamic State appears imminent. But just as five years after the death of Osama bin Laden, al Qaeda remains a threat, it is far from clear that this victory over ISIS will prove any more lasting. Sixteen years after the 9/11 attacks the threat from terrorism has not diminished, and U.S. policy appears better at stopping terrorists than addressing the root causes of terrorism.

Homeland Security Chairman Michael McCaul will join Gov. Tom Kean (R-NJ), former Rep. Lee Hamilton (D-IN), and the Bipartisan Policy Center for a conference to examine the evolution of terrorism from 9/11 to ISIS and beyond, the effectiveness of U.S. counter-terrorism strategy, and how to break the cycle in the future. Chairman McCaul will kick off the conference with a keynote presentation and conversation with Founder and President of the Bipartisan Policy Center, Jason Grumet.

Media invited to attend. RSVP, here.

The Bipartisan Policy center will be livestreaming the event; watch here.
