At SXSW 2018, Stratfor's Fred Burton participated in a panel discussion on the challenges combating terrorism and strategies to move the needle in the future. He was joined by W20 Vice Chair and Chief Innovation Officer Bob Pearson, Broadcasting Board of Governors Chief Strategy Officer Haroon Ullah and Next Century Corporation Chief Scienteist Dr. Victoria Romero for the conversation entitled Countering Hate: Understanding and Stopping Extremism.

Burton shared insights from his career as a counterterrorism agent with the U.S. Department of State's Diplomatic Security Service and ongoing work tracking, analyzing and forecasting trends in global terrorism with Stratfor's Threat Lens team.

The panel discussion coincided with the release of Pearson and Ullah's new book Countering Hate, which includes a sidebar by Burton entitled "Pushing the Boulder Up A Hill: Why Are Terrorist Operations Successful."
