Central and Eastern Europe’s Emerging Foreign Fighter Market: Syria and Beyond

  • The Jamestown Foundation 1310 L Street Northwest Washington, DC, 20005 United States (map)

In recent years, thousands of European aspiring jihadists have made the trek to Syria in order to join the ranks of Islamic State and other militant Islamist groups. Central and Eastern Europe is among the regions affected by the European foreign fighter outflow. While the foreign fighter mobilization in Central and Eastern Europe has been modest in comparison to similar mobilizations in Western and Northern Europe, it nonetheless has serious implications for the future security of the region.

The Jamestown Foundation is hosting a discussion on the threat foreign fighters pose to Central and Eastern Europe, a region potentially emerging as Europe’s foreign fighter market.
