The Genocidal Threat of Homegrown Jihadism in America

02 February 2016

Online media and political analysis website Observer writes about the George Washington University's Program on Extremism in the United States, co-founded by EFD Senior Policy Advisor Lorenzo Vidino in June 2015. The article discusses the impetus for its founding and what makes it distinguishable from other similar programmes, such as the need for more nuanced conversation on homegrown violent extremism, rather than black and white generalisations.

The article further examines the programme and discusses several of its current activities and objectives against the backdrop of the rise of domestic-based jihadism and homegrown radicalisation in the United States.
