An in-depth analysis on the spread of Islamic terrorist organizations in Africa—specifically ISIS and al-Qaeda. In this report, the authors offer suggestions for a joint umbrella/master strategy to fight the spread of Islamic terrorism in Africa. This overarching strategy should include some regional sub-strategies adapted to the reality in the respective region of implementation (e.g., the Horn of Africa or the Sahel). The authors also argue that, in addition to their military activities, African governments should be more receptive and meet the resident’s needs in all areas of life (improve personal security, healthcare, education, critical infrastructures such as water and electricity, transportation and most of all, employment for the younger generation).
