Upcoming Public Program: "The Rise of Global Jihad"

A composite image features a professional headshot on the lefthand side of Thomas Hegghammer, a terrorism expert, and text to the right that reads, "Announcing new digital public programs, Monday, February 8."

We are pleased to present the next program in our When the World Changes digital conversation series at 2 p.m. ET on Monday, February 8.

Thomas Hegghammer, a senior research fellow at the Norwegian Defence Research Establishment and author of The Caravan: Abdallah Azzam and the Rise of Global Jihad, will discuss the early history and ideology of al-Qaeda in "The Rise of Global Jihad."

The When the World Changes series is dedicated to offering insight, empathy, and expertise toward past and present challenges by drawing on lessons learned from 9/11 history: how strength was expressed in a time of sorrow, how unimaginable problems were solved, and how tragedy and adversity were met with resilience and hope.

Live captioning will be provided for this program. Join us at 911memorial.org/watch.
