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.

This webinar will be broadcasted live via the PCNS’ Facebook page and YouTube channel, with live coverage on Twitter. It will also be re-posted on IEP's social media channels.

Participants:

Serge Stroobants, Director of Europe and MENA Region, Institute for Economics and Peace

El Mostafa Rezrazi, Senior Fellow, Policy Center for the New South

The discussion will be moderated by María José Maldonado, Programme Manager Europe & MENA Region, Institute for Economics and Peace.
