“IS ideology ”lives on” despite its military demise”

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.
“People ask me how we can effectively deal with them. My reply is that stop funding these organisations would be a good start.” Norell was addressing an invited audience at the launch of his new book which seeks to trace the religious and ideological roots of IS and the Caliphate. 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.
