Over the past year, several devastating terror attacks have hit European countries. The rise of Daesh has caused an increase in jihadi terror and extremism throughout Europe. So-called jihadi travelers are a growing problem in several European countries, and violent Islamist extremism has become a top security threat for Europe as a whole.
Together with Institute for Security & Development Policy (ISDP), Frivärld (Stockholm Free World Forum) is pleased to welcome you to the lecture and seminar “Global Jihad, Islamic Radicalism, and the Challenge to Europe”. During the event, keynote speaker Matthias Küntzel will give a presentation of the ideological origins of Islamic radicalism and jihadism. The lecture will be followed by a panel discussion where Annika Borg and Aron Verständig will comment on the situation in Sweden as well as how the West is approaching this challenge.
The seminar will be moderated by Svante Cornell, director of ISDP and Katarina Tracz, director of Frivärld.
