Terrorism-the international security environment

The legacy of ISIL’s caliphate— foreign fighters and their families, its global network, and the availability of propaganda inciting violence—still shapes the global environment.

Further, the emergence of nationalist and isolationist narratives globally is normalising aspects of extreme right-wing ideology.
