Zwanzig Jahre einer veränderten Welt – Neuer Podcast der International Crisis Group
On the eve of the twentieth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, a new episode of Hold Your Fire! looks at the shadow cast by the “global war on terror” across South Asia, the Middle East and Africa. Richard Atwood and Naz Modirzadeh discuss how Islamist militants – groups like al-Qaeda and later ISIS – have fared in twenty years marked by the Afghanistan and Iraq wars, the 2011 Arab revolutions, the war in Syria and U.S. counter-terrorism operations in many other corners of the world. They examine what efforts against militants look like today and some of the flaws of existing counter-terrorism policy.
This episode is the first in a series on this podcast looking at the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks and the impact of the “global war on terror”. For Crisis Group’s other publications on this topic, see our series The Legacy of 9/11 and the „War on Terror”.
