Having studied the Syrian foreign fighter phenomenon since 2012, ICSR is the only research organisation to have interviewed dozens of foreign fighters, both on the ground in Turkey and via social media. Based on this research and ICSR’s unique database of now just under 400 social media profiles of active fighters, two members of our Syria research team will address recent developments in this exclusive ICSR Briefing.

When: Wednesday, 25 June
