Beyond ISIS & Al-Qaeda: The Long Tail of Global Islamist Violence

Addressing vulnerability and promoting security
Posted Nov 06, 2018 | International Centre for the Study of Radicalisation and Political Violence, Milo Comerford, Jean Heery, Rachael Garner

While ideology is a unifying thread among Islamic groups of varying size and location, militants have leveraged local grievances and politics to develop their brands of violent Islamism. Priorities thus vary by environment and context. In this analysis for the International Centre for the Study of Radicalisation and Political Violence, Milo Comerford, Jean Heery, and Rachael Garner assess whether a resurgent al-Qaeda may retake the reins of global jihad after the exodus of ISIS fighters from Iraq and Syria.  With 121 different violent Islamist groups active during 2017, there may be a broader movement ready to carry on the two groups’ objectives in different theatres.
