From the Sahel to Somalia, Salafi-jihadi groups are strengthening in Africa. The growing threat has placed regional states under pressure to respond. But do these African groups threaten Western interests beyond the continent? AEI’s Critical Threats Project and the US Military Academy at West Point’s Combating Terrorism Center (CTC) are hosting a summer debate series on the Islamic State and al Qaeda in Africa. Each event will pose one policy-relevant question to a panel of experts, who will argue their theses before engaging in a discussion and an audience Q&A. Please join AEI’s Katherine Zimmerman and CTC’s Jason Warner for the second debate, featuring a panel of experts examining the extent to which African Salafi-jihadi groups threaten Western interests. LIVE Q&A: Submit questions to [email protected] or on Twitter with #DebatingAfricanJihad_AEICTC. Follow this hashtag for event updates.
