For decades, CBRN terrorism has been one of the focal points for counterterrorism and counterextremism efforts across the globe. Although successful instances of terrorist use of CBRN are, fortunately, relatively rare, the impact can be catastrophic. However, the potential for far-right extremist groups to pursue and use CBRN weapons has been under-explored in comparison to Islamist groups.

In a recent presentation co-written with CTEC Deputy Director Alex Newhouse, MIIS Associate Professor Philipp Bleek assesses the threat of far-right CBRN terrorism and explains how CBRN weapons can play a symbolic role in far-right identity creation. Dr. Bleek presented November 3, 2020 at CBRNe Convergence, a practitioner-oriented CBRN threat and response conference, in Orlando, FL.
