    Peacebuilding in an Era of Radical Right Extremism: Where to Go From Here

     

    On January 6, 2021, tens of thousands streamed to Washington DC to speak out against what they saw as a fraudulent election that would unfairly elect Joe Biden as President and oust Donald Trump. Among the protestors were representatives of violent organizations, including Christian Nationalists, QAnon, and white supremacist hate groups who would proceed to commit domestic terrorism by storming the Capitol building in search of Congresspersons to attack, punish, and even kill. This lecture will explain the apocalyptic roots of radical right extremism to understand what makes the ideology of violent extremism appealing to so many, what we can expect in the future, and how we can finally begin to stem the cycle of radicalization and heal our nation.
