From ISIS to the various Al Qaeda franchises, the battle against Islamist extremism has changed constantly since the attacks of September 11, 2001. In the aftermath of the Brussels and Paris attacks, how is the nature of the threat evolving? What is the best way of countering violent extremism in vulnerable populations at home – and could some of the steps currently being taken prove counterproductive? Just how worried should we be – and how much weight should really be put on the fight against terrorism in an era which also has so many other challenges? PS21 talks to Richard Barrett, former senior British intelligence official, head of the United Nations Al Qaeda and Taliban monitoring team 2004-13 and one of the world’s leading experts on the changing jihadist threat. Moderated by Peter Apps, Reuters global affairs columnist and executive director of the Project for Study of the 21st Century.
