As ISIS’ physical caliphate in Iraq and Syria crumbles, the propensity of the group to shift resources further into ensuring the strength of its virtual caliphate is top-of-mind for policy makers and technologists working in the CVE and counterterrorism spaces.

New America is pleased to welcome the Rt Hon Amber Rudd, UK Home Secretary and Member of Parliament for Hastings and Rye, for a discussion on these and other topics.

The Home Secretary will be joined by Joshua Geltzer, an ASU Future of War Fellow at New America and previously the senior director for counterterrorism at the National Security Council staff from 2015-2017; Evanna Hu, a technologist and partner at Omelas, a firm at the intersection of P/CVE/CT and technology that aims to prevent and eradicate violent extremism by working with clients, including civil society, corporations, and governments in Europe and the Middle East on the integration of data analytics tech to make their work more efficient.

Additional panelists will be announced in the coming days.
