How Civil Wars Start

It’s been a year since a mob attacked the U.S. Capitol, attempting to keep Donald Trump in office by overturning the results of the 2020 election. As we approach the 2022 midterms, should we expect more of the same? Or worse?

Thursday, January 13, 2022 @ 3 PM - 4 PM PT

The United States has long been known for its optimism. We trust that peace prevails, our institutions are unshakable, and our democracy is unbreakable.

But in the past decade, America has undergone seismic changes in cultural and economic power that have created a fertile breeding ground for political violence, and the potential for civil war, according to Barbara F. Walter, author of the newly released, "How Civil Wars Start And How to Stop Them".

Join us as Walter and Brennan Center Fellow Michael German, a former FBI special agent and expert on domestic terrorism and law enforcement, discuss the threats our country faces from domestic violent extremists – and the warning signs of a deeper and broader factionalization.


SPEAKERS:

Barbara F. Walter, Rohr Professor of International Relations, School of Global Policy and Strategy, University of California, San Diego; Author, How Civil Wars Start And How To Stop Them

Michael German, Fellow, Liberty & National Security Program, Brennan Center; Author, Disrupt, Discredit, and Divide: How the New FBI Damages Democracy
