Lieutenant Colonel Edward Powers, Commandant of the Marine Corps Fellow, United States Institute of Peace

  • How can long-term efforts to reduce the violent extremist threat be used with short-term, reactive CT efforts as a necessary complimentary component?
  • How can the military and civilian efforts be better integrated and amplify their efforts by making use of the access to conflict zones and military logistical capacity?
  • Understanding how the mechanisms in place can be improved to incentivize a coherent, bi-lateral CVE campaign, that can effectively integrate existing military missions with the soft powers efforts of civilian organizations

  • What measures need to be put in place to survey CVE metrics in Prevention, Disengagement and Deradicalisation Programs?
  • Do the challenges surrounding measurement of effect vary depending on the “style” of communication chosen? If so, how?
  • If negative rhetoric relies on disproving/providing a retort to statements made by our adversary, what role should this play in our messaging efforts? How can we ensure we get the balance right and don’t become reliant on a reactive approach?
