Between 2016 and 2018, New York Times foreign correspondent Rukmini Callimachi led an effort that gathered more than 15,000 pages of documents left behind by the Islamic State in Iraq. These documents, known as "The ISIS Files," reveal the group's sophisticated governance structure and provide detailed evidence of its activities and atrocities. Joined by Cole Bunzel from the George Washington University Program on Extremism, Callimachi discusses the university’s latest report on this trove of documents.

This program is presented in partnership with the George Washington University Program on Extremism.
