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. Click here for a sampling of this work.

The Foreign Policy Research Institute, founded in 1955, is a non-partisan, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization devoted to bringing the insights of scholarship to bear on the development of policies that advance U.S. national interests. In the tradition of our founder, Ambassador Robert Strausz-Hupé, Philadelphia-based FPRI embraces history and geography to illuminate foreign policy challenges facing the United States. more about FPRI »
