CIC National Capital (Ottawa): POSTPONED – Terrorism in Africa, Ethnonationalist or Religious?

March 18 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm EDT


In light of the growing concerns about public events facilitating the spread of infections from covid-19, the Steering Committee has decided to cancel the presentation by Phil Gurski scheduled for next Wednesday. We hope to resume programming (including rescheduling Phil Gurski) once it is again appropriate to do so.

Vu la préoccupation grandissante au sujet du risque que les rencontres publiques facilitent la diffusion d’infections par covid-19, le Comité directeur a décidé d’annuler la présentation par Phil Gurski prévue pour mercredi prochain. Nous espérons reprendre nos activités (y compris avec M Gurski) dès que cela semble raisonnable.


This event by the CIC National Capital Branch’s Africa Study Group (ASG)’s will feature Phil Gurski, formerly of CSIS and previously the CSE, and now CEO of Borealis Threat and Risk Consulting.

Speaker Bio:

He is the author of “The Threat from Within: Recognizing Al Qaeda-inspired Radicalization and Terrorism in the West” (Rowman and Littlefield 2015), “Western Foreign Fighters: the Threat to Homeland and International Security” (Rowman and Littlefield 2017), The Lesser Jihads: Taking the Islamist Fight to the World (Rowman and Littlefield 2017), An End to the ‘War on Terrorism ’ and When Religion Kills: How Extremists Justify Violence through Faith (Lynne Rienner 2019).
