Gina Vale - The Days After. Countering the recurrence of IS extremism

Speech by Ms. Gina Vale - Workshop: The Days After. Countering the recurrence of IS extremism, 14.06.2019 Sheraton Hotel, Berlin

Gina Vale, IS-Expert, Kings College in London starts her contribution by explaining that the calling of the terror organization as “Daesh” makes it seem as if it is a homogenous group. To overcome the challenges which IS brings one must understand that the IS is not just a group of men with weapons, which means that the solution of this is not to punish the members on an individual level. She explains that the IS aims to build a nation of their own in which on should not underestimate the role of women and children since the IS uses them to legitimate their nation.
