Fight against Boko Haram in 2015

Boko Haram is a Nigerian terrorist organization that ranks among one of the most destructive terrorist organizations of all time. The insurgents pose a great threat to Africa's most populous country and its neighbors. This group performs acts of religious terrorism, but also by certain acts it belongs to the guerrilla group. It has organized combat tactics, which, however, began to change over time in 2015. Boko Haram, like the Islamic State in Syria and Iraq, is trying to create a caliphate in northern Nigeria that will be governed primarily by Sharia law.

Kenya versus al-Shabaab

The long-running conflict in the Horn of Africa is taking on a new dimension. Kenya joined the fight against the Islamist group al-Shabaab in Somalia in October, provoked by numerous attacks by al-Shabaab. The conflict in Somalia has a number of indirect consequences for Kenya that threaten its own stability. One of them is the influx of large numbers of refugees. Near the border with Somalia is the world's largest refugee camp, Dadaab, which has been home to 400,000 refugees. The refugee complex has become Kenya's third largest " city ". The influx of refugees further weakens an already poor country. In addition to the indirect security threats posed by Somalia's instability, al-Shabaab groups have begun to threaten Kenya with direct attacks on its territory.

The following study deals with the nature of the regime in Islamabad and its steps in the field of suppressing extremism.

The impact of Chechen terrorism on Russian counter - terrorism policy and its real applications

Since it is relatively easy to recognize the causal aspects of these relationships at the general level of knowledge of the area, the authors did not try to test hypotheses based on the mentioned causality, but rather specified the interpretation of their structural and immediate causes.
