Extremism and the Global Health Crisis
Extremists of all stripes have been trying to capitalize on the current global health crisis. Jihadist groups and chat rooms have been touting the Coronavirus as a "soldier of Allah" and a divine punishment for infidels. Neo-Nazi militants have been similarly discussing ways to spread panic and purposely infect members of the law enforcement and Jewish communities. Parts of the internet are rife with conspiracy theories and discussions on how to take advantage of the spread of COVID-19.

To discuss these dynamics, the Program on Extremism at The George Washington University is pleased to invite you to a digital event, 'Extremism and the Global Health Crisis,' on Monday, March 30, at 11 AM EST. The event will be held via Zoom Webinar.

The discussion will be moderated by Program on Extremism Director of Research Alexander Meleagrou-Hitchens, and feature:

Aymenn Jawad Al-Tamimi, Researcher and Program on Extremism ISIS Files Fellow

Chelsea Daymon, Researcher and PhD candidate at American University

Oren Segal, Vice President of the Anti-Defamation League's Center on Extremism

Mar 30, 2020 11:00 AM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
