The Africa Center for Strategic Studies will convene a webinar on the workings and impact of the Islamic State in the Greater Sahara (ISGS), nearly two years after the killing of the group’s leader, Adnan Abu Walid al-Sahraoui. The webinar will explore the political, social and economic context that affect ISGS behavior and strategy vis a vis governments, other violent extremist groups, self-defense militias, criminal actors, and civilian population.
- Participants will have a better understanding of the composition, motivations and objectives, as well as drivers and enabling factors of the Islamic State in the Greater Sahara (ISGS).
- Participants will have a fine-grained understanding of the political, social and economic context that affect ISGS behavior and strategy.
- Participants will gain better insights into the most relevant frameworks and approaches to understanding and diagnosing the key VE actors in their contexts.
