How to map the Muslim Brotherhood’s presence in an uncharted region?

Monday, May 25, 2020

10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. EDT / 16:00 – 18:00 CEST

The Muslim Brotherhood is many things to many observers. Some label it a terrorist organization, while others accept it as a modernist movement. There is reason as to why this entity is challenging to pinpoint. It has constantly evolved and has expanded across multiple countries, where the group took on various forms and adjusted its activities accordingly. Its Western European activities have been thoroughly covered in academic literature. What is lacking, however, is uncovering the group’s on-the-ground presence in Eastern Europe. Supported by CEP, GLOBSEC has begun to map the Brotherhood’s work in a selection of countries in the region. At this webinar, we will present the first report on the methodology of this effort along with examples of the Brotherhood’s activities in the CEE.
