Radical Islamism has strengthened twenty years after the United States-led West waged a “war on terror,” and Islamist movements that want to coexist in pluralistic environments are failing. How did we get to the current situation? Who are the Islamists today and how do they see society and the world? How can they affect the geopolitics of the coming decades?

Professors and specialists in contemporary Islam Jean Pierre Filiu and Lurdes Vidal Bertran will talk with the journalist corresponding to North Africa and the Middle East Javier Martín, the writer Santiago Alba Rico and the journalist Cristina Mas about the current situation of Islamism and the dilemmas facing this political movement today, on the occasion of the publication of the book Islamism (s). Islam and politics in a global world (Editorial Base), promoted by the Flama Solidarity Foundation.
