Map and Directions

Marine Corps University, in partnership with the Minerva Research Initiative and the Marine Corps University Foundation, is pleased to announce its May 2012 Emerald Express Strategic Symposium, “War Termination: How Terrorist and Radical Groups End”. The one-day conference brings together military and civilian practitioners, U.S. academics, policymakers and subject-matter experts to examine how extremist groups come to be less threatening on a local, regional, and global scale.

In the morning, the distinguished panelists will analyze groups that have been integrated into the political system (the IRA & FMLN), groups that have come to an end through eradication campaigns (the Italian Red Brigades & Argentinian Montoneros), and groups that have been "managed" at an acceptable threat level (ETA & Indian Sikh movement). In the afternoon, the focus will shift to those groups with yet unknown end-states, including the Nepali Maoists, the Taliban, and Al-Qaida.  

Distinguished Speakers
The keynote speaker is Ambassador Daniel Benjamin, Coordinator for Counterterrorism, Department of State.  Dr. Martha Crenshaw, a pioneer in the academic study of terrorism, will provide super-commentary for the event.
