Join Dickinson Professor Jacob Udo-Udo Jacob who will give the Bechtel Lecture and discuss religious identity and violent extremism in the African Sahel region.
Religious identity, Dickinson Professor Jacob Udo-Udo Jacob argues, has far greater normative influence on extremist recruitment and radicalization than religious beliefs and other appeals, but it has rarely been accounted for in counter-narrative campaigns and deradicalization programs in the West African Sahel region. This program is sponsored by the Clarke Forum for Contemporary Issues and the Bechtel Lectureship Fund. For more information, visit the website or call717-245-1875.
