(Aug. 28, 2017) Join leading terrorism researcher Robert Pape, Ph.D., as he explains the impact of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) on the Middle East at his free lecture, “What’s Next after ISIS?” The event, geared for residents 55 and older, will take place at 11 a.m. Friday, Sept. 22, at Oakton Community College’s Skokie campus, 7701 N. Lincoln Ave.
“Having highly sought-after and nationally-recognized researchers as presenters in our program is extremely valuable and speaks directly to the quality experiences we are able to provide,” notes Jesse Ivory, senior manager for business and community programs at Oakton. “I have found Dr. Pape to be extremely gifted in providing the kind of in-depth analysis of national security and terrorism topics that you just can’t get from the national news. This is an incredible opportunity for attendees to hear from a renowned researcher through this event.”
A professor of political science at the University of Chicago, Pape is an author, commentator and founder of the Chicago Project on Security and Threats. He has written dozens of publications including “Dying to Win: The Strategic Logic of Suicide Terrorism” and “Cutting the Fuse: The Explosion of Global Suicide Terrorism and How to Stop it.” His commentary on international security policy has appeared in noted media outlets such as the New York Times, Washington Post, Boston Globe and Los Angeles Times.
