Member of the advisory board of the Counter Extremism Project (CEP) and former Coordinator of the ISIL, Al-Qaeda and Taliban Monitoring Team, United Nations Security Council
The Counter Extremism Project (CEP) and the Konrad Adenauer Foundation (KAS) hosted a webinar on Thursday, June 22, 2023, focusing on the deteriorating security situation in West Africa and the Sahel region.
The webinar focused on the three most relevant terrorist networks currently operating in the region: JNIM, ISWAP, and ISGS. Understanding the various operational aspects and challenges that these regional terrorist networks pose is a necessary first step to develop sustainable, effective, and regionally based counter strategies.
