Project leader Prof. Isak Svensson and Daniel Finnbogason’s article “Confronting the caliphate? Explaining civil resistance in jihadist proto-states” has now been published and is available in Open Access. 

The article is a contribution to the growing research on civil resistance and rebel governance, now also incorporating research on terrorism. In this comparative analysis of three jihadist proto-states, the authors argue that civil resistance is dependent on the jihadists’ governing strategies and the social structures for mobilization.
