Cancelled – Countering Violent Extremism: The Role of Religion in Conflict Prevention with Dr. John Esposito

On behalf of The Hague Institute, The Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the U.S. Embassy in The Hague, we very much regret to inform you that the lecture on Countering Violent Extremism: The Role of Religion in Conflict Prevention has been cancelled due to unforeseen family reasons for Dr. John Esposito. We apologize for any inconvenience this cancellation may cause and remain at your disposal should you have any questions. 


Founding Director of the Alwaleed Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding at the Walsh School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University, Dr. Esposito was President of the American Academy of Religion and Middle East Studies Association of North America and also served as consultant to the U.S. Department of State and other agencies, European and Asian governments, corporations, universities, and the media worldwide. He is also a member of the World Economic Forum’s Council of 100 Leaders and the E. C. European Network of Experts on De-Radicalization. Dr. Esposito’s more than 45 books and 100 articles have been translated into 35 languages.

This event will build on The Hague Institute’s policy-oriented work on countering violent extremism, which has so far focused on ‘education‘ and ‘cities‘ as forms of prevention. Further details of publications and other previous events on this topic can be found on its website.
