The ISIS Files

  • Monday, April 22, 2019
  • 7 to 8:30 p.m.
  • Auditorium

Over the last few years, New York Times foreign correspondent Rukmini Callimachi led an effort that gathered over 15,000 pages of documents left behind by ISIS in Iraq. These documents, which became known as the “The ISIS Files,” reveal the group’s sophisticated and organized governance structure and provide detailed evidence of their activities and atrocities. Joined by Lorenzo Vidino, director of the George Washington University Program on Extremism, Callimachi discusses how these documents have shaped our understanding of ISIS.

 

This program was presented in partnership with the George Washington University Program on Extremism.
