Europe is at the centre of an economic and geopolitical storm. Since last September, the prices of electricity and natural gas have steadily increased. EU natural gas prices soared to a new record high of €180 per megawatt-hour on the 21st of December, underpinned by a double-whammy of cold weather forecasts in late December and fears of supply disruptions. If compared to an average of €20 per megawatt-hour in mid-June, the December figures represent a 900% increase.

Why did jihadism go global? To answer this question, researcher Thomas Hegghammer has carried out a remarkable, decade-long, terrific effort, collecting sources and interviews while discovering new data. Such research began when most researchers were interested in analysing the latest jihadist group, and it led him to the historic and ideological paradigms of “the most transnational rebel movement in modern history”.
