Présentation par les organisateurs

The attacks in the United Kingdom by convicted terrorist offenders Usman Khan in November 2019 and by Sudesh Amman in February 2020 fueled the debate about the potential threat posed by released prisoners and the risk of terrorist recidivism. At the same time, research suggests that recidivism rates are actually very low at even less than 5 percent. As part of the “International Forum for Expert Exchange on Countering Islamist Extremism” (InFoEx), we invite you to this online event to discuss the existing scientific evidence and experiences from practitioners working in the field of prevention of extremism, as well as consequences for deradicalization and disengagement work in Germany.

  • Moderator: Alexander Ritzmann (Associate Fellow, DGAP; Member of the Steering Committee, Radicalisation Awareness Network (RAN), Germany).


  • Prof. Dr. Andrew Silke, Professor for Terrorism, Risk & Resilience, University of Cranfield, United Kingdom
