The Global Politics of Counter-Terrorism

Episode 4: The United States' changing approach to Counter-Terrorism with Daniel Byman

In our fourth episode we speak to Daniel L. Byman, senior fellow at the Center for Middle East Policy at Brookings and professor at the Georgetown University Walsh School of Foreign Service's Security Studies Program. 

Daniel discusses his career, the United States' shift away from international counter-terrorism in favour of domestic counter-terrorism, the rise of white nationalist terrorism in the US, how institutional failures can lead to radicalisation, if these issues are being addressed effectively, the role of China and Russia, what needs to be done by the US and lessons learned from his work. Interviewing him is Alexander von Rosenbach, ICCT’s business manager.
