Fourteen Years and Counting: The Evolving Terrorist Threat

Addressing vulnerability and promoting security
Posted Sep 30, 2015 | Combating Terrorism Center, Michael Morrell

Fourteen years ago, the United States and its allies launched the war on terror, specifically against al-Qa’ida. In this paper from the Combating Terrorism Center, Michael Morrell looks at similarly motivated extremist groups elsewhere in the world, the threat they pose and measures that could be taken against them. He suggests that for every al-Qa`ida narrative there should be a counter-narrative, delivered largely by governments in countries where young people are radicalized, and by Islamic scholars and clerics. Such programs will take years to bear fruit, and Islamic extremism is likely to persist.
