In recent years, we have seen how transnational jihadist movements like al-Qaeda and Islamic State tap into local conflicts, often resulting in an escalation of violence. In this special episode of the DIIS podcast, we investigate the questions of how jihadist conflicts become transnational and under what circumstances they can be contained. Join Mona Kanwal Sheikh, Saer El-Jaichi, Dino Krause - the DIIS researchers behind the project "Explaining Transnational Jihad" - as they discuss one of the greatest contemporary challenges on the international agenda.
