Islam in motion

Junction of the Security Dynamics of the Lake Chad Basin and the Great Lakes Region

After its 2016 cycle “Maghreb 2020”, Hestia Expertise is developing a new theme in 2017“ Islam in motion”, which is interested in the dynamics of Islam in its different forms from it's territorial anchors (Balkans, Africa, Middle East): and how Islam has found itself in a situation of Evolution, Mutation or Expansion?

The 8th February presentation will focus on this theme: “Junction of the Security Dynamics of the Lake Chad Basin and the Great Lakes Region”, although not yet well-known, Cyril Musila is the main specialist in this field. How does Islam, comprising it's proselytizing and radical forms, descend from the pericardium basin to Central Africa and the Great Lakes?

This subject, with heavy medium term consequences, enters perfectly into the hopes of anticipation of the Hestia Presentation to address a question already badly perceived by the countries concerned.
