“How Terrorism Ends: Implications for ISIS”
There is almost no disagreement that Jihadist extremism is one of the critical matters challenging the United States’ foreign policy today. However, the nature, extent, potential growth, and seriousness of this challenge and remedies for it are still subject to a wide ranging debate. As we seek clarity, we are fortunate to be joined by an extraordinary authority, Audrey Kurth Cronin.
She is the author of “How Terrorism Ends: Understanding the Decline and Demise of Terrorist Campaigns”, a thorough study of the tactic of terrorism. Her important article in Foreign Affairs, “ISIS Is Not a terrorist Group: Why Counterterrorism Won’t Stop the Latest Jihadist Threat” made the basic distinction between the tactic of terrorism and ISIS as a “proto-state.”
Professor Cronin graduated summa cum laude from Princeton, studied at Oxford as a Marshall Scholar earning her MPhil and DPhil in International Relations, and held a post-doctoral fellowship at Harvard.
Her career has blended academe and government service, just as her thinking blends theory and practice. She has taught at the Universities of Virginia, Georgetown, Maryland, Columbia, Oxford (Director of Studies for the Programme on the Changing Character of War), and George Mason; the National War College (Director of the Core Course on Military Strategy); and now American University in the School of International Service. She was a Specialist in Terrorism at the Congressional Research Service and served in the Office of the Secretary of Defense. She is on a number of editorial boards of security focused journals.
Her books and journal articles constitute a comprehensive and coherent analysis of the weapon of terrorism and the phenomenon of today’s Jihadist extremism. We are being joined by an analyst and strategist superbly equipped to illuminate terrorism and its endings as well as the unique ISIS challenge.
It is a great pleasure to welcome Professor Audrey Kurth Cronin to the Council.
