Future extremists will focus not on exporting violence to the West, but on building influence in their own communities.
Katherine Zimmerman writes that, rather than focusing on terrorists and terrain, the US and its partners should focus on breaking the bonds between the Salafi-jihadi groups and local communities.
Rikke Hostrup Haugbølle and Ahlam Chemlali write: There is a need for a holistic approach which links and documents the complexity of everyday violence and security and the deeper causes of migration and radicalization, not only in Tunisia but in the wider Maghreb. Everyday experiences of violence are a burden to many ordinary citizens in Tunisia and the Maghreb region and constitute a root cause of pending social and political challenges for — at least in the case of Tunisia — further progress in the transitional process and in the development of a participatory democracy. – Middle East Institute
