Countering Terrorism and Extremism Program Experts
The Recrudescence Project is a policy-focused initiative being conducted jointly by the Middle East Institute’s (MEI) Countering Terrorism and Extremism Program, the Center for National Security (CNS) at Fordham Law and the Combating Terrorism Center (CTC) at West Point and launched in order to research the next wave of jihadist terrorism and to devise more effective strategies to prevent or mitigate it.
The Countering Terrorism & Extremism Program’s Advisory Council is a body of venerable individuals committed to supporting the program’s mission to generate a more locally-rooted understanding of the threats and challenges of today and tomorrow - grasping where they come from and why they come about, and most importantly, how to more effectively and sustainably defeat them.
