New Terrorism Threats and Counterterrorism Strategies

In the post-9/11 era, the international community has made significant progress in the struggle against terrorism. However, in the last several years, terrorist groups, notably ISIS, have innovated both in their operational tactics and strategic aims, as well as in their methods of fundraising.

NYU Washington, D.C. welcomed CNAS and the Center on Law and Security at NYU School of Law for this public conference on new terrorism threats and counterterrorism strategies. Featuring an overview of the strategic terrorism threat landscape and of the Trump administration’s counterterrorism strategies, the event also coincided with the release of a CNAS report on emerging terrorism financing threats. The distinguished panel of experts explored such questions as: How are terrorist groups innovating and evolving in their tactics, strategies and fundraising today? Where are some areas where U.S. policymakers are succeeding and falling short on addressing terrorism threats? What should the Trump administration prioritize in the fight against terrorism?
