Public lecture : Migration and Violent Extremism – Current Affairs
by Khalid Koser
Over the last year two global crises of migration and violent extremism have collided. There are growing concerns that Europe’s refugee crisis risks importing the violent extremism that plagues the Middle East and North Africa.
This public lecture considers how violent extremism can be both a cause for and consequence of migration, but also how migration can be a critical component in countering violent extremism. The challenge for Europe’s policy makers is to maintain the dividends of migration while managing its risks.
