The rapid rise of Central Asian jihadists both on Syrian battlefields and on the international scene in 2016 and especially in 2017 forced researchers to reconsider and renew the notion of the radical Islamic threat coming from the region. The paper examines the historical background which paved the way for the rise of local jihadism, the roots, nature and specifics of the Central Asian foreign fighters phenomenon, as well as current trends and risks for international and national security.
