The fifth episode of Warpod's special series ‘Reckoning with 9/11’ episode considers how the war on terror evolved as problems mounted, especially looking at the rise of Remote Warfare and Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) programmes. To explore the rise of remote warfare and its impact on communities in conflict-affected countries, hosts Larry Attree and Delina Goxho are joined by Dan Mahanty, Director of CIVIC's U.S. Program, Victoria Ohaeri, founder and director of Spaces For Change, and Abigail Watson, Saferworld’s Conflict and Security Policy Coordinator.
Then to discuss CVE, our hosts are joined by Graeme Simpson, Director of Interpeace USA and Lead Author of the Progress Study on Youth, Peace and Security, and Jordan Street, Saferworld’s Policy and Advocacy Adviser.
This special Warpod series ‘Reckoning with 9/11’ is created by Saferworld with support from Friedrich Ebert Stiftung, and produced by the Podcast Company.
