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 fourth 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 IV

It covers key questions concerning Islamic State’s (IS) long-term prospects as it continues to lose territories as well as Jihadi culture and its future appeal.

This report also focuses on the fallout of jihadi violence as the Algerian conflict wound down in the 1990s and the extent to which this may provide examples for what may happen in Iraq and Syria.

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

  • How losing territory effects IS’s ideology
  • Lessons from Algeria
  • Jihadi culture

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 fourth report in the After Islamic State Workshop 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.
