In ICSR's News, Seminars

In recent years, dozens of young Muslims from Britain, Europe and North America have gone to Somalia to fight with the al-Qaeda affiliate al-Shabaab.

ICSR’s latest report – Lights, Camera, Jihad: Al-Shabaab’s Western Media Strategy – is the first to provide a comprehensive analysis of how al-Shabaab is reaching out to Western audiences, using high quality videos, Twitter, and carefully crafted messages that resonate with the concerns of young Western Muslims.

Join two of the report’s authors – Alexander Meleagrou-Hitchens and Shiraz Maher – as they present the report, discuss its main findings, and answer questions.
