Terrorism in North Africa and the Sahel in 2016

On April 13, 2017, the Inter-University Center for Terrorism Studies (IUCTS) published its eighth annual report, “Terrorism in North Africa and the Sahel in 2016,” authored by Prof. Yonah Alexander, Director-IUCTS. The report finds the region & global community facing the most serious security challenges since 9/11, from natural and man-made threats.  The rise of the Islamic State and the resilience of al-Qa’ida and their affiliates in Africa in 2016 have resulted in continued instability on the continent with a costly strategic impact inter-regionally. The study recommends the U.S. & allies engage more effectively to slow a security crisis that is erupting across Africa’s “arc of instability.”
