On December 9, 2021, the Program on Extremism at The George Washington University and the National Counterterrorism, Innovation, Technology, and Education Center (NCITE) held a virtual event to accompany the release of its newest report, Rise of the Reactionaries: Comparing the Ideologies of Salafi-Jihadism and White Supremacist Extremism, authored by Alexander Meleagrou-Hitchens, Blyth Crawford and Valentin Wutke. The study provides an in-depth assessment of the ideological similarities between white supremacist extremists and jihadists. It explores the underlying reactionary and violently intolerant nature of both movements, arguing that they can be understood as the products of very similar political impulses which are gaining traction around the world.

Alexander Meleagrou-Hitchens, Research Director at the Program on Extremism moderated a discussion on the report’s findings and more. Speakers included:
