Boko Haram: A Militant Leadership Monitor Special Report

The Jamestown Foundation is proud to announce the newest feature for our Militant Leadership Monitor annual subscribers - a Quarterly Special Report (QSR).
    January 26, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- In addition to receiving full access to the mlm.jamestown.org website, past archives of MLM, and new issues automatically delivered monthly to your inbox for a full year, Jamestown Militant Leadership Monitor subscribers will now receive the Quarterly Special Report.

The QSR will focus on providing timely in-depth analysis of a critically important militant movement and its key leadership figures, offering insight into their aims, ideological motivations and strategies.

The first Quarterly Special Report looks at Boko Haram: Nigeria's Islamist Movement.

In this "Special Report on Boko Haram: Nigeria's Islamist Movement," we examine the rise of Boko Haram's elusive leader Abu Shekau, and the policies of the group's former charismatic leader - Mohammed Yusuf - whose death in 2009 led to Shekau's rise as well as increased international focus on the group's activities in recent years.

This 2012 QSR features a collection of highly relevant Terrorism Monitor and Militant Leadership Monitor articles, compiled, updated and complemented with all new analysis and resources to provide unique information and objective analysis on recent developments in the Boko Haram movement of Nigeria.

This analysis is particularly relevant as the security situation in Nigeria worsens and experts wonder if the al-Qaeda movement has spread beyond Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb to sub-Saharan Africa.

From the repercussions of its first attacks on police stations in December 2003 through the Kano bombings of January 2012, we take you through the history and reasoning behind the violent actions of this movement, which characterizes Western Civilization as forbidden.

Non-subscribers can Purchase a Digital Copy of the Boko Haram Special Report on the Jamestown Foundation website for $20.00.

Militant Leadership Monitor subscribers will receive a free PDF copy of this and all future QSRs in their email.
