Julie Chernov Hwang will talk about her new book, Why Terrorists Quit: the Disengagement of Indonesian Jihadists, which explores how some Indonesian Islamist extremists are disengaging from violence and reintegrating back into society. She will describe the psychological, relational, rational and emotional processes underpinning disengagement in Indonesia and their implications for effective counter-terrorism policy.

Julie Chernov Hwang is an associate professor of political science and international relations in the Center for People, Politics and Markets at Goucher College. Her new research project examines the pathways to entry into Southeast Asian Islamist extremist groups.
