In the last two months, Sunni extremists spread terror across the Middle East and Africa. On June 29, 2014, the Islamic State self-proclaimed its caliphate. After one year, in correspondence to the beginning of the holy month of Ramadan, the organization called its supporters to escalate violence. On June 26, the same day of IS attacks, and exactly 5 years after the 2010 Ramadan offensive against the African Union, Al Shabaab assaulted an AMISOM military base in Somalia. Last, but not least, Boko Haram disseminated panic in the Chadian capital. In the following exclusive article, EPOS analyst Lorenzo Siggillino focuses on the issue of Sunni terrorism, highlighting the causes and the effects of it from a political and social point of view

Under Yusuf's leadership, the terroristic attacks of Boko Haram were sporadic and mainly directed against local authorities. The group wanted to destabilize Nigeria and create an Islamic State. Aboubakar Shekau led the organization through a new course, characterized by the attempt to gain visibility and shock the global public opinion in order to diffuse terror and the "jihad". What has been the evolution of Boko Haram in the last years? Who is Aboubakar Shekau and what did he do? What is the current modus operandi of Boko Haram? What is the future of this militant Islamist group? EPOS's new analyst Lorenzo Sigillino answers these and other questions in the following article, which is the second part of an EPOS exclusive analysis on Boko Haram

In the North, poverty, marginalisation and weak feelings of national belonging have generated conditions for resentment, expressed by the population through the factor that had characterized their history: Islam. The following article is the first part of an exclusive analysis on Boko Haram realized by EPOS' new analyst Lorenzo Giuseppe Siggillino, Master's Degree in International Relations, Master of Arts in Economies and Institutions of the Islamic Countries, and researcher about security, ethnic and religious conflicts

Italy, because of its specific geographical location, as well as being a necessary step to reach other European countries, over time has become a territory of destination for migrants arriving by the sea, using makeshift equipments that expose them to serious life threats. A real "useless massacre" which in 25 years has led to the deaths of more than 20 thousand people in an attempt to cross the Mediterranean sea. Antonio Ricci, Senior researcher and founder of IDOS Study and Research Centre, analyses the issue of immigration in the following illuminating article, which is an abstract of his speech at the discussion panel entitled "Immigration Policy of the EU – Experiences from Eastern and Southern Boarders" organized by EPOS at the XXIV World Economic Forum in Krynica, Poland

EPOS Insights

Although less common than female sexual assault, male raping as a war weapon is increasing. It is used as an instrument of terror and group punishment, an expression of ethnic hatred and humiliation. It is also intended to emasculate and shatter leadership structures. Male rape has become a tactic of war, both in Uganda and Syria, where a increasing number of men has been exposed to sexual violence during the conflicts
