In the third paper of this series, intelligence analyst Jeff Cozzens looks at the culture of global jihad and why it presents Western Governments with a unique strategic and operational challenge.

The paper makes several poignant recommendations, including the leveraging of Islamist ‘decision-brokers’ as a way of offsetting these approaches.
