CREST has led a series of ‘After Islamic State’ workshops to address the potential implications of the demise of Islamic States’s territory in Syria and Iraq. Convened by CREST Researcher, Dr Cerwyn Moore, these workshops brought together scholars and practitioners from around the globe.

As a result of these in-depth discussions we’ve created a series of reports which summarise each of the workshops.

This report is the third in the series, After Islamic State: Understanding the End of the Caliphate, and is available to read, download and share: After Islamic State: Workshop Report III

It covers key questions concerning Tunisia and Militancy in North Africa as well as a historian’s perspective of transnational mobilisations, exploring the lessons that can be learned from the fate of the mujahedeen in Afghanistan.

This report also includes a discussion on militant mobilisation and militant ideology, and the potential implications of the decline of IS from the perspective of research into social movements.

The focus of this report is split into the following chapters:

  • Tunisia and Militancy in North Africa
  • Foreign Fighters After IS
  • Lessons from the Mujahedeen in Afghanistan
  • Militant Ideology After IS
  • ‘Building a Caliphate’ After IS
  • Militant Mobilisation After the Islamic State

There’s also a question and answer section at the end of each chapter which gives further detail into the issues surrounding these topics.

Some of these presentations are also available in CREST Security Review, Issue 4 – ‘After Islamic State’, which is available to read, download and share here.

This is the third report in the After Islamic State series. You can read all the reports in this series here. To be kept in the loop about new reports, as well as other resources we publish, sign up to our newsletter.
