Syria Calling: Radicalisation in Central Asia | International Crisis Group

Syria Calling: Radicalisation in Central Asia | International Crisis Group | Conflict transformation, peacebuilding and security | Scoop.it
The Islamic State (IS) is attracting Central Asians to Syria and fostering new links among radicals within the region. Unless the five Central Asian governments develop a credible, coordinated counter-action plan, including improved security measures but also social, political and economic reforms, growing radicalism will eventually pose a serious threat to their stability.

Border control has become of primary importance, and an essential part of understanding the dynamics of competing political claims and armed movements.
