Two PONARS Eurasia members contributed to the special issue of Pathways to Peace and Security, "Addressing Terrorism, Violent Extremism and Radicalization: Perspectives from Russia and the United States," published by Russia’s Institute of World Economy and International Relations (IMEMO).
The volume is an academic effort, involving nine Russian and eight U.S. researchers, to explore the substance, underlying drivers, dynamics, implications, and ways to address, prevent, and counter terrorism, violent extremism, and radicalization. These issues are addressed with a focus on the United States and Russia (where appropriate, in comparative context) and in the U.S.-Russia context. Special attention is paid to the overall level and types of threat that the two countries face at home, national antiterrorism strategies, and ways to counter (violent) extremism and radicalization, and to antiterrorism aspects of the armed conflicts and conflict management in Syria, Afghanistan, and the surrounding regions.
This volume includes articles in both English and Russian. It is edited and co-authored by PONARS member Ekaterina Stepanova and includes an article in English by PONARS member George Gavrilis, “Central Asia’s uncertain radicalization and the opportunities for the Russia-U.S. cooperation.”
