Trends in Political Islam Post-Arab Spring Roundtable

The CIES in partnership with the George C. Marshall European Center for Security Studies (GCMC) organized an expert meeting entitled “Trends in Political Islam Post-Arab Spring Roundtable: Understanding Salafism and Violent Extremism,” that was held at Kadir Has University on 26-28 September 2013.

This has been the first in a series of three roundtables designed to assess recent trends in Political Islam and the potential for impact on national security. The main debates were the trends associated with Political Islam in Eurasia, Middle East, and Europe; the recent trends in policy approaches to the evolving Political Islam; and policy recommendations on whether and how to engage with different groups within the broader spectrum of Political Islam.

This event was by invitation only.
