This program at the International Spy Museum was co-sponsored by the RAND Corporation.
Angel Rabasa and William Rosenau talked about al-Qaeda’s evolution and the emergence of groups affiliated, associated, or inspired by al-Qaeda. They are contributors to the two-volume RAND Corporation study Beyond al-Qaeda: Ideology, the Terrorist Universe, and Fighting Back which examines how the evolution of the U.S. response to terrorism since September 11, 2001, has been countered by the evolution of terrorist enterprises. They discussed global jihadist movements, policy recommendations to counter al-Qaeda’s ideology, links between global and local jihadist organizations, and ways to strengthen the capabilities of front-line states and moderate civil society groups. After their presentation they responded to audience members' questions.
