The vast majority of jihadists come from or have connections with specific areas or districts within different states. They can be labelled as local/regional "hotbeds" of extremism, each of the them with unique characteristics that lead to "exporting" fighters or creating IS–controlled zones. What are the differences and similarities amongst the various "hotbeds"? Which are the causes and who are the largest contributors to the jihadist militancy?
The event draws from ISPI–EFD Report "Jihadist hotbeds. Understanding local radicalisation processes", edited by Arturo Varvelli (ISPI).
The event has been organised in partnership with the European Foundation for Democracy and it was held in Brussels on 12th October at 12.30 pm, at Infopoint Europa (address: Rue Archimède 1).
