Expert interview with Dr Cynthia Salloum on jihadism in France

In 2020, it became clear that the danger emanating from organizations like the Islamic State and al-Qaeda has not been eliminated. Instead, several European countries – and among them France – have recently fallen victim to a series of attacks. 

This publication is part of the “Jihadist Terrorism in Europe” series, in which renowned experts analyze the current state of the jihadist threat in various countries.
