MiDAS-KAS Conference 2022: Regional Terrorism and Violent Extremism Challenges
Renowned experts and officials will share insights and exchange information and ideas on the region's current terrorism and violent extremism threats.
Amidst the pandemic, superpowers competition and the political situation in Europe, terrorism remains a thorny issue and still requires serious attention. While trends on radicalisation, terrorist operations, and attacks from previous years seem to continue, reports have shown that terrorists are taking advantage of the pandemic. In addition, analysts argued that the recent development in Afghanistan has repercussions on counter-terrorism.
