New Report on Jihadism in Africa

A new research paper from the Berlin-based Stiftung Wissenschaft und Politik (SWP) says that the transnational terrorism of the twenty-first century feeds on local and regional conflicts, without which most terrorist groups would never have appeared in the first place.

Jihadism in Africa - Local Causes, Regional Expansion, International Alliances,  adds that understanding the specific conditions on the ground remains key to analysing events currently playing out in the so-called African arc of instability that runs from East Africa to Mauritania and extends as far north as Tunisia and south to northern Nigeria.

The paper's chapter on Libya is authored by Wolfram Lacher (pictured).
