A Special Issue on Stabilizing the Fertile Crescent after the Fall of the Caliphate.
Although most of ISIS’s territory has been wrested from its control, the threat posed by this terrorist organization and by competing jihadi actors has not diminished. How will ISIS and others utilize online platforms to continue to sow global terror? What can the authorities do in cyberspace to crack down on online recruiting? And what is the future role of military force against remnants of this deadly group in the Middle East and North Africa?
While the conflict in Syria shows no sign of abating, scholars and policymakers alike are trying to make projections for the “day after,” when the fighting stops and reconstruction begins. In this podcast, Dr. Benedetta Berti tackles this thorny issue as well as the necessity of disarmament, demobilization, and reintegration (DDR) of former combatants, and the modus operandi of the current range of actors operating in the Syrian theater.

The Foreign Policy Research Institute has been a hub for leading scholars and practitioners in the field of terrorism, counterterrorism, and extremism to produce a number very important works on the topics of ISIS, al-Qaeda, the global jihad movement, and the impacts of their activities on the MENA region and the world. These works have helped shape both the policy and scholarly discussion around these topics, and put FPRI on the map as a leading think tank on the rise of global jihadism.
