The Soufan Center has posted an “IntelBrief” providing its outlook of the counterterrorism landscape at the dawn of a new year. It begins by noting that 2021 will present the U.S. and the world with multiple opportunities to assess and reshape approaches to counterterrorism. For one, the United Nations General Assembly will negotiate a biennial review of its Global Terrorism Strategy this summer as nations grapple with their responses to new and evolving threats. Furthermore, the U.S. will weigh decisions on how to manage foreign policy challenges that include Iran, North Korea, and Afghanistan. All the while, the U.S. will have to manage complex dynamics with China and Russia. The Soufan Center also notes the U.S. will need to address emerging terrorist threats that have more domestic implications, such as violent right-wing extremists, racially and ethnically motivated terrorism, and rehabilitating and reintegrating terrorist detainees and their family members.
