BKC Meet the Author Series: Urs Gasser in conversation with Farah Pandith

"How We Can Defeat the Extremist Threat"

Our featured author series, hosted by Berkman Klein Center Executive Director Urs Gasser and Farah Pandith, featured an in-depth conversation about big topics and issues from her book,  How We Win: How Cutting-Edge Entrepreneurs, Political Visionaries, Enlightened Business Leaders, and Social Media Mavens Can Defeat the Extremist Threat.

In her new book, Farah Pandith, a world-leading expert and pioneer in countering violent extremism, lays out a comprehensive strategy for how we can defeat the growing extremist threat, once and for all. Drawing upon her time as the first-ever Special Representative to Muslim Communities, Pandith argues that this is not just a challenge for government or NGOs, but that we must go “all in” to counter extremist ideologies. From technology companies and entrepreneurs to businesses in the private sector, this is an all-encompassing global issue that we must address together.
