Islamic Terrorism and the Balkans

Front Cover
DIANE Publishing, 2010 - 11 pages
In the 1990s, wars and political instability provided an opportunity for Al Qaeda and other terrorist groups to infiltrate the Balkans. However, U.S. and European peacekeeping troops, aid, and the prospect of Euro-Atlantic integration have helped to bring more stability to the region in recent years. Moreover, the 9/11 attacks on the U.S. underscored the dangers of global terrorism, and resulted in increased U.S. attention and aid to fight the terrorist threat. Many experts currently do not view the Balkans as a key region harboring or funding terrorists, in contrast to the Middle East, South Asia, Southeast Asia, and Western Europe. Contents of this report: Introduction; Bosnia and Herzegovina; Albania; Kosovo; U.S. Policy; Congressional Response; Conclusion.
