The Institute for Economics & Peace and the Policy Center for the New South (PCNS) are organising a joint webinar under the theme ‘Global Terrorism: A Focus on the Sahel Region’, which will be held on Friday, January 8th at 15:00 (GMT+1).
The webinar is part of a series to discuss the findings of the Global Terrorism Index 2020 and take a look at recent trends in the Sahel region. The Global Terrorism Index (GTI) is an annual report produced by the Institute for Economics & Peace. Now on its 8th edition, the report provides a comprehensive summary of the key global trends and patterns in terrorism. It analyses a number of vital aspects of terrorism such as the socio- economic conditions under which it occurs, how terrorism changes over time, the geopolitical drivers and ideological aims of terrorist groups and the strategies used by terrorists.
