There has long been persistent Islamic militancy, of various forms, throughout South and South-East Asia, while Uighur-linked violence in China has increased over the past two years. The emergence of the Islamic State (IS) has had a profound impact on this threat: the first major attack in Jakarta in seven years, increased militancy in Bangladesh, new groups established to rival the Taliban in Afghanistan and Pakistan, and jihadists from across the region travelling to Syria to fight for IS.
This webinar will identify how this threat will evolve and those areas and targets most at risk.
Attendees will learn:
- How IS views South, South-East & East Asia and what it hopes to achieve there.
- How threats will evolve and those areas and targets most at risk.
- How militants across the region view IS and why so many have pledged their allegiance.
