Summary:
"This monograph explores the spread of extremist Islamic religious movements and ideologies that advocate violence in the face of both moderates and secularism in North Africa, mainly in Egypt, Morocco, Algeria, Sudan and Libya. Aiming to promote an understanding of the regional, national and international factors that have led to extremism and violence, the contributors to this monograph interrogate the ideological tools used by Islamic thinkers and the contextual factors that shape them, as well as the historical and political contexts in which extremism and violence take root. The authors also analyse the current measures adopted by states and regional actors to combat extremism. Furthermore, Islamic networks of extremist movements and transnational relationships are examined in order to gain a better understanding of the factors leading to the convergence and growing inter-connectivity among extremist groups"--Introduction.
