The phenomenal rise of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, also known as ISIS, has created a profound national security threat to the United States. However, ISIS is only one aspect of a much broader and important phenomenon in the Islamic world, namely extremism.
The purpose of this two day conference is to examine the causes for, and manifestations of, extremism in the Greater Middle East and their implications for American foreign policy.
