TRENDS Research & Advisory and the International Centre for the Study of Radicalisation hosted a two day conference on Jihadist Insurgency. The influence and impact of jihadist insurgency movements is being felt around the world in both “failed states” and established states. This two day conference brought together experts from around the world to discuss and explore the phenomenon of insurgency movements that are utilizing the concept of jihad to guide and justify their actions and objectives. The conference was able to provide up to date insights and understandings of the wide range of Islamic-inspired Jihadist insurgent movements in the world, as well as investigated the methods employed by these organisations. In improving our understanding of jihadist insurgency we can better develop the responses available.
