After the Caliphate: The Islamic State and the Future Terrorist Diaspora

November 12, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Join us for an evening conversation and book signing with Colin P. Clarke, political scientist and author of “After the Caliphate: The Islamic State and the Future Terrorist Diaspora.”

In 2014, the declaration of the Islamic State caliphate was hailed as a major victory by the global jihadist movement. But it was short-lived. Three years on, the caliphate was destroyed, leaving its surviving fighters – many of whom were foreign recruits – to retreat and scatter across the globe.

So what happens now?

Colin P. Clarke joins us to for an evening conversation about the future of the Islamic State and terrorism in the middle east. His new book will be available at a discount for purchase and signing at the event. Check or credit card will be accepted for book purchases. Click here for details about his book.
