The Soufan Center invites you to join us for a webinar entitled, “Echoes of January 6th: Lasting Impacts for Transnational Far-Right Violent Extremism.” Taking place on January 25, 2022 from 10:00 – 11:30 am ET, the webinar will assess projections for the evolution of far-right violent extremism internationally. As the United States marks the one-year anniversary of the Capitol insurrection that took place on January 6, 2021, it is critical to assess how U.S. domestic violent extremism may act as a catalyst for far-right extremist networks globally, both online and offline. The continued proliferation and resonance of neo-Nazi ideology and violent white supremacy is a global phenomenon, and increasing connections and linkages between far-right extremists, across a “salad bar” of ideologies, will strengthen existing networks and continue to help the movement evolve in dangerous ways.
Through a moderated interactive session, panelists will explore the lasting impacts of January 6th on the transnational far-right violent extremist threat. The Soufan Center builds on its extensive analyses in reports, IntelBriefs, and the media on far-right violent extremism and U.S. domestic violent extremism to present this virtual discussion, bringing together researchers, analysts, and practitioners for a unique and timely discussion.
