What Do ISIS and Al Qaeda Do Now?

| Middle East Program

About the Event

Although the United States and its allies severed the Islamic State’s hold over a considerable amount of territory in Iraq and Syria, its core message still thrives, and ISIS can be expected to regroup. It will continue, with Al Qaeda, to pose a threat to the West and others. This is explored in great depth in Colin Clarke’s new book After the Caliphate: The Islamic State and the Future of the Terrorist Diaspora — the subject of our conversation with the author.
A Senior Research Fellow at the Soufan Center and a Senior Fellow of FPRI, Clarke is a  long-time student of jihadism and terrorism. He has been quoted in The NY Times, the Washington Post and the Wall Street Journal, and has published in Foreign Affairs, Foreign Policy, and The Atlantic. He teaches at Carnegie Mellon University and spent a decade at the RAND Corporation.
