Penn Engineering Establishes Rachleff Scholars Program to Foster Research, Leadership, Community Outreach
PHILADELPHIA –- The School of Engineering and Applied Science at the University of Pennsylvania has established the Rachleff Scholars honors program offering undergraduates the early opportunity to conduct research with University faculty, organize partnerships with regional industry and perform community outreach.
Dr. Peter Neumann of King’s College London will discuss the European Commission-funded study, “Recruitment and Mobilization for the Islamist Militant Movement in Europe.” This study, and others, will form the basis for EU policy making in preventing violent radicalization. Based on secondary research as well as extensive fieldwork in Britain, France and Spain, the report provides the most comprehensive picture of the methods through which Islamist militants in Europe mobilize supporters and find new recruits.
