The foreign fighters phenomenon and related security trends in the Middle East: PS73-1/2016-01-01E-PDF

highlights from the workshop, 28-29 October 2015.

On 28 and 29 October 2015, the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) hosted a workshop examining the dynamics underpinning the conflict in Syria and Iraq and related security consequences. The event was held under the CSIS Academic Outreach (AO) program. Unfolding under Chatham House rule, it provided an opportunity for the participants to address the long term drivers of security in the broader Middle East, as well as the current state of and future prospects for the foreign fighters phenomenon. This workshop was designed around the work of multiple researchers from North America, Europe and the Middle East. The papers presented at the event form the basis of this report, which also contains a summary provided by the workshop moderator. All parts of the report reflect the views of those independent experts, not those of CSIS.
