The Building Resilience Summit will explore issues related to Targeted Violence Against People of Faith from a pragmatic as well as an academic perspective. It will build on field work engaged in by both the Rutgers Miller Center for Community Protection and Resilience and Stockton University, and draw upon the practical experiences of faith leaders who have confronted extremist violence, the expertise of federal, state, local, and international law enforcement professionals, and research conducted by leading academicians. The Summit’s overarching goal is to connect theoretical research with real-world experience in order to devise practical, achievable approaches to the problem of extremist violence.
