Jessica Stern

Jessica Stern is one of the world’s leading experts on terrorism and serves on the Hoover Institution Task Force on National Security. She fearlessly studies terrorists who kill innocent people for political gain and travels the world to talk to those who commit such acts. She has met terrorists with Kalashnikovs in Pakistan, interviewed neo-Nazis in America and Sweden, and visited the homes of terrorist leaders in Indonesia. But it was only after she faced her own suppressed trauma that she understood why she was more afraid to meet the victims than the terrorists themselves.
