Dr. Lounnas Publishes Paper for the H2020 European Union PREVEX Project

Dr. Djallil Lounnas, Assistant Professor of International Studies at AUI, recently published a paper titled "Analysis of the implications of the French killing of Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) leader Droukdel on violent extremism in North Africa and the Sahel" for the H2020 European Union Preventing Violent Extremism (PREVEX) project in which AUI is involved.  The paper, based on interviews conducted by Dr. Lounnas and co-author Akram Kharief, looks at the consequences of the death of Abelmalek Droukdal, supreme leader of AQIM killed last June in Mali and on the future of this organization in Algeria and the Sahel, in the wake of the death of its founder.
