Africa and the Expanding Front of Violent Extremism
While groups like ISIS and al-Qaeda have lost ground in the Middle East, terrorist attacks and extremist ideologies have spread across many African nations. Whether it’s the continued presence of Boko Haram in Nigeria or more recent attacks on the Ivory Coast and in Burkina Faso, terrorism is a growing problem in Africa. Dr. Muhammad Fraser-Rahim, executive director of Quilliam in North America and assistant professor in the Citadel’s Department of Intelligence and Security Studies, and Katherine Zimmerman, research fellow at the American Enterprise Institute and research manager for AEI’s Critical Threats Project, will discuss options for responding to these threats.
