The ADL Boulder Steering Committee is hosting a community briefing on March 5th focusing on Homegrown Extremists. Our guest is Oren Segal, the Director of the Anti-Defamation League‘s Center on Extremism and the Director of ADL’s Research Center.
Mr. Segal is an expert in the radicalization process and criminal activity associated with homegrown extremists motivated by radical interpretations of Islam, as well as the role of the Internet in the radicalization process. He edits Terrorism Update, ADL’s Web site and newsletter dedicated to breaking news and in-depth features on domestic and international terrorism of the right and the left. Mr. Segal has been with the League for 13 years. Much of his time with ADL has been devoted to evaluating the activity and tactics of extremist groups and movements, training law enforcement officers and publishing reports and articles on a wide range of extremist topics. As part of his work, Mr. Segal also examines the domestic anti-Israel movement, monitoring and analyzing emerging trends and campaigns, including activity on college campuses. National and international media outlets, including The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, BBC, CNN and FOX News, have interviewed Mr. Segal. A graduate of Wheaton College in Massachusetts, Mr. Segal, a native New Yorker, has previously worked for The New York Times and for the Jewish Community Federation in San Francisco.
