How We Win: Combating (and Defeating) the Extremist Threat


Chase Center
Wednesday, March 27, 2019, 5 – 7pm

Despite the billions of dollars spent since 9/11 trying to defeat terrorist organizations, radical extremism remains a threat. Join Tisch College and the Fletcher School for a conversation with foreign policy expert Farah Pandith about her new book, How We Win: How Cutting-Edge Entrepreneurs, Political Visionaries, Enlightened Business Leaders, and Social Media Mavens Can Defeat the Extremist Threat. How We Win presents a new analysis of global extremism and argues for a paradigm shift in the approach to combat it, one that mobilizes the expertise and resources of diplomats, corporate leaders, mental health experts, social scientists, entrepreneurs, local communities, and, most of all, global youth. Check out the book’s full description here.

Farah Pandith, F95, is an entrepreneur, foreign policy strategist, and former diplomat. She served as a political appointee under Presidents George H.W. Bush, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama. She was the first-ever State Department Special Representative to Muslim Communities, serving both Secretaries Hillary Clinton and John Kerry. Pandith was the director for Middle East Regional Initiatives at the National Security Council and the chief of staff at USAID’s Bureau for Asia and the Near East. She has also served on the Homeland Security Advisory Council, chairing its task force on countering violent extremism.
