The Atomwaffen Division: A Case for Sanctions?
The Soufan Center hosted a discussion on the nature and transnational linkages of The Atomwaffen Division, a U.S.-based white supremacy extremist group. Panelists discussed the group’s recent disbandment announcement, the impact of connections between white supremacists and far-right organizations in the United States, the United Kingdom and elsewhere, as well as effective methods for addressing and curbing the growing threat of transitional white-supremacy-related violence.
The webinar, hosted by Emerita Torres, Director of Policy Research and Programs at The Soufan Center, featured three panelists:
- Jason Blazakis, Senior Research Fellow at The Soufan Center
- Nikita Malik, Associate Fellow at The Soufan Center and Director of Radicalization and Terrorism at the Henry Jackson Society
- Tess Owen, Reporter at VICE News
