Bendetta Berti
“The surprising way groups like ISIS stay in power”

Our TED talk for 4/22 features policy analyst Bendetta Berti, who shares with us a very timely topic, “The surprising way groups like ISIS stay in power.”

ISIS, Hezbollah, Hamas. These three very different groups are known for violence — but that’s only a portion of what they do, says Benedetta. They also attempt to win over populations with social work: setting up schools and hospitals, offering safety and security, and filling the gaps left by weak governments. Understanding the broader work of these groups suggests new strategies for ending the violence.

Benedetta is an expert on political violence, civil war and security who aims to understand when and why armed groups get involved in politics — and the implications this has for governments and how understanding the broader work of these groups suggests new strategies for ending the violence.
