The Associated Press and Yahoo News announced the release of a study of violent extremists that Mark was the program manager of at the Qatar International Academy for Security Studies. Mark noted that the interview of former detainees suggested that treatment behind bars was a factor in keeping them from rejoining extremist groups. Mark said: “The fact they were treated with dignity and humanely was a positive influence on them once they are in custody and continued to be a positive influence years later.” Mark recommended a more “holistic view” as countries evaluate their counterterrorism plans.
