RSVP to “Domestic Terrorism Strikes U.S. Capitol, and Democracy”

January 14 @ 5:45 pm - 6:45 pm

Join the Center for Jewish Civilization for the lecture, “Domestic Terrorism Strikes U.S. Capitol, and Democracy,” by Dr. Bruce Hoffman. Only those who register will receive the Zoom link to access the lecture. RSVP here!

About the Event:

On January 6, pro-Trump rioters violently breached the U.S. Capitol and disrupted the electoral process. How did we get here? In his recent analysis of domestic terrorism for the Council on Foreign Relations, CJC Director Bruce Hoffman stated that “these events have undermined faith in the sanctity of American institutions and constitutional values.” “America is now at an epochal moment, which calls for strong moral leadership and sober reflection.” With ten days left until President-elect Biden’s inauguration, Professor Hoffman will discuss the implications of the terrorist act and the challenges it poses to the incoming administration.

About the Speaker:

Professor Hoffman has been studying terrorism and insurgency for over four decades. Prior to serving as the director of Georgetown University’s Center for Jewish Civilization he was the director of its Center for Security Studies and Security Studies Program. He previously held the Corporate Chair in Counterterrorism and Counterinsurgency at the RAND Corporation, where he was also director of RAND’s Washington Office and vice president for external affairs.

Hoffman was appointed by the U.S. Congress as a commissioner on the 9/11 Review Commission and has been Scholar-in-Residence for Counterterrorism at the Central Intelligence Agency; adviser on counterterrorism to the Coalition Provisional Authority, Baghdad, Iraq; and, an adviser on counterinsurgency to Multi-National Forces-Iraq Headquarters, Baghdad, Iraq.

Hoffman’s most recent books include The Evolution of the Global Terrorist Threat (2014); Anonymous Soldiers (2015); and, Inside Terrorism (3rd edition, 2017).
