Countering Extremism, Free Speech, and Schools

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Critically evaluate Countering Violent Extremism (or counterradicalization) initiatives, focusing on impacton free speech, particularly on the Internet and in schools. The program will begin with a conversation aimed at: 1) familiarizing the audience with CVE programs, including those that are being piloted in Boston, Los Angeles and Minneapolis and the UK's Prevent program on which these initiatives are based; 2) articulating how such programs constrict the range of opinions that are considered acceptable, as well as facilitating surveillance of certain communities; 3) highlighting calls for greater monitoring of extremist content on the Internet, and 4) grappling with the particular challenges faced by educators. The program will then turn to an interactive phase in which the moderator will ask the audience to respond to scenarios based on actual programs to trigger an active discussion.
