The workshop will take stock of the main structural, geopolitical dynamics shaping the region; analyze the impact (actual and potential) of the cascade of state failure in the region on local, regional, and global security; explore how these changes are transforming the ideology, organization, and modus operandi of terrorist organizations; and ask how counter-terrorism tactics, strategies, rules, and institutions need to evolve to better understand and manage the new reality.
