Summary note:
The work provides a comprehensive account of Islamist terrorism in Europe from 1994 until 2015, and a detailed background for understanding the current and future threat. In contrast to existing research, which has emphasized social explanations, failed immigration and home-grown radicalization, the text highlights transnational factors. It shows how jihadi terrorism in Europe is intrinsically linked to, and reflects the ideological agendas of, armed organizations in conflict zones such as Al Qaida and IS, and how entrepreneurial jihad-veterans facilitate the transnationalization of militancy.
