European Business Review reports:

Speaking in Brussels, Magnus Norell said, “The ideology remains, of course, and that will not change. It is important to acknowledge that the ideology is not defeated.” The Swedish academic also warned that the best way to tackle the phenomenon in the long term was to cut off the sources of funding for groups like IS and Boko Haram in Nigeria.

The event, at Brussels Press Club on Tuesday, was organised by the European Foundation for Democracy, a leading policy institute and the think tank TRENDS Research and Advisory.
