Jan Havlíček is a graduate of the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey, California, where he acquired a Master’s degree in Nonproliferation and Terrorism Studies. A common thread throughout his education was the focus on radicalization and terrorist recruitment, Islamic extremism, terrorism in Africa and the Middle East, and the use of predictive profiling as a threat assessment technique. Following his studies, he has gathered experience in the fields of counterterrorism and disarmament, working on projects for the Center on Terrorism, Extremism, and Counterterrorism (CTEC) in California, as well as the United Nations Office for Disarmament Affairs (UNODA) in New York.
