Radicalization as a Social Phenomenon - Phil Gurski

You are here

Phil Gurski, President and CEO of Borealis Threat and Risk Consulting, discusses the need to approach radicalization from a real­ world, social, perspective. With more than three decades of experience at CSIS, Gurski argues that we shouldn’t ascribe too much importance to social media and understand that radicalization is a human phenomenon. Instead, social media is used to share information, have doubts resolved and extremist beliefs confirmed.
