increasing basis, they represent a phenomenon that we must confront and better
For this reason, cooperation among EU
member states in the fight against this threat has strengthened following the
Paris and Brussels attacks. This book includes a collection of essays
aimed to provide insight into the origins, evolution, principal
characteristics, and unique means of recruitment and financing of Islamic
terrorist organisations. Moreover, it examines the diffusion of Islamic
radicalisation among young Europeans and of foreign fighters, who, in growing
numbers, leave their home countries to join Daesh.
