With news of another terrorist attack in Mozambique, continued kidnappings in Nigeria, and new terrorism designations by the U.S. throughout the continent, concern over the rise of violent extremism in Africa is growing. The effects of this extremism are far-reaching - both geographically across Africa and economically. Last year alone, a United Nations report estimated that African Nations lost nearly $97 billion in informal economic activity due to extremism and terrorism. What influences the growth of extremism in Africa. How can violent extremism and terrorism be combated on the continent? To answer these questions and more, FPRI's Africa Program Chair, Ambassador Charles A. Ray, has assembled a panel of experts on extremism and terrorism in Africa. Ray will be joined by Dr. Yonah Alexander, Dr. Emma Boyle, and Samuel Ramani.
