Terrorism is questioning the political and social stability of our countries. It is posing a number of a challenges to democracy. From London to Tehran, the main aim of the terrorists is to destabilise and weaken the State. The crucial issue to be addressed is the identification of those who are behind the terrorists. Saudi Arabia  is accusing Qatar of promoting, supporting and financing jihadism, and Riyad has severed diplomatic ties with Doha. Tension is high in the Gulf region and the winds of war are blowing

Kamaran Mohammad, expert in geopolitics, security issues and international relations, is an Assistant Lecturer of Political Science at College of Law and Politics, Salahaadin University, in Erbil. In the following exclusive article for EPOS WorldView, he discusses the future of Mosul, analysing the position of all the armed groups involved in the operation to retake the city after more than two years of Islamic State occupation. Mr. Mohammad tries to answer two questions: how can these forces participate in rebuilding and governing Mosul? Can they be reintegrated into formal army and state institutions? Rebuilding Mosul and all other liberated areas requires a national and comprehensive strategy but, at the moment, there is no vision and common understanding of the priorities, Mr. Mohammad states

Bangladesh is constitutionally a secular State but, since the Sixties, the secularist nature of the country has been put in danger by the strong impulses given by the extremist Islamic groups. Although the government should protect the believers of any religion and defend those who express their position against Islam, in the last years too many secularist bloggers and intellectuals that spread messages of religious openness and of gender equality have been killed. A chain of violence and terror is threatening pacific coexistence in Bangladesh and the survival of religious minorities. EPOS’ analyst Valeria Sforzini investigates and discusses the sensitive issues of the “sectarian terror” in Bangladesh in the following article

Bangladesh has a long history of fringe extremist groups. Some of those are a legacy of the war in Afghanistan, in which some Bangladeshis fought; others are byproducts of the Wahhabi influence that Bangladeshi workers in the Persian Gulf brought back when they returned home; still others are ISIS-addicted. The Islamic State is recruiting supporters among that part of the population dissatisfied with the government's handling, and perhaps the attackers in Dhaka were some of them. Whatever its exact nature, however, according to the analysts it seems that terrorism is largely the result of the government’s repression against mainstream dissent

In the aftermath of the terrorist attacks in Paris, French President François Hollande called for legislative reforms that would expand the country’s ability to fight terrorism both at home and abroad. He appealed for amendments to the Constitution that would create "an appropriate tool we can use without having to resort to the state of emergency". In the light of the fact that President Hollande sought to extend the current state of emergency, we wonder: what is the line between collective security and individual liberty? In the following exclusive interview for EPOS, Emmanuel Dupuy tries to answer this hard question. Expert in security issues and geopolitics of the Mediterranean region, Dupuy is the President of Paris-based institute IPSE, Institut Prospective et Sécurité en Europe. In the interview, he focuses on the security aspects of the issues, and he analyses accurately the debate on the traditional democratic guarantees that could be affected and be jeopardized after the latest event
