In November 2015, ISIS terrorists massacred scores of people in Paris with coordinated attacks on the Bataclan concert hall, cafés and restaurants, and the national sports stadium. On Bastille Day in 2016, an ISIS sympathizer drove a truck into crowds of vacationers at the beaches of Nice, and two weeks later an elderly French priest was murdered during morning Mass by two ISIS militants.

What caused the radicalization of young French Muslims to occur? Why did the governments in France and across Europe fail to address it? Why is this new wave of jihadists targeting Europe?

Gilles Kepel, one of Europe's leading experts on Islamism, the Middle East, and North Africa, is a professor at the Institute of Political Studies, Paris (Sciences Po). His numerous books—which include Jihad: The Trail of Political IslamThe War for Muslim Minds: Islam and the West, and Beyond Terror and Martyrdom: The Future of the Middle East—have been translated into 17 languages.

Munich Security Conference: Mixed Messages on American Values, Engagement

The United States sent mixed signals at the 2018 Munich Security Conference. On the one hand, a bipartisan group of officials stressed continuity and legislative oversight when it comes to American foreign policy. But on the other, while not in attendance, President Trump undermined this message with tweets and comments signalling a more transactional approach.
