Professor True-Frost Receives Grant to Research "Countering Violent Extremism"
Associate Professor of Law C. Cora True-Frost has received a grant from the Andrew Berlin Family Fund, via the Institute for National Security and Counterterrorism (INSCT), to develop and host a workshop on “Countering Violent Extremism: The Challenges and Opportunities the Initiatives Present.”
The workshop, to include members of academia, students, and legal and law enforcement professionals, will examine “a new dimension of the age-old relationship between security and human rights: the international-level and national-level embrace of preventing or countering violent extremism programs addressing the conditions conducive to terrorism.”
“The workshop will draw upon my current academic work that increasingly incorporates security concerns with my traditional focus on human rights,” said True-Frost. “I anticipate this event to inform my future scholarship and serve as an opportunity for participants to exchange ideas and evolve their own research on this important topic.”
Stay tuned for more info on the upcoming workshop. The Andrew Berlin Family Fund was created in 2010 when the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs received an endowment gift to fund faculty and graduate student research relating to issues of national security. The Berlin Fund, established in honor of Professor David H. Bennett, operates through INSCT, a collaboration between SU Maxwell School and the Syracuse Law.
