Congratulations to the Capstone Course Students!

Students in Professor Alex Wilner’s Capstone course undertook an intensive project, organizing and managing an online, Peer-to-Peer, Preventing Violent Extremism (PVE) social media campaign during the 2017 winter term.  After presenting their project to Global Affairs Canada, the students and Professor Wilner went on to produce an article describing the promises and pitfalls of the campaign.

The article, The 60 Days of PVE Campaign: Lessons on Organizing an Online, Peer-to-Peer, Counter-radicalization Program, was recently published in the Journal of Deradicalization. It can be reviewed here.

Congratulations on work well done, team!
