Muslim Asia and U.S. Security Interests
The Islamist orientation of global terrorism demands particular attention to the political, economic, and social dynamics of Muslim societies and to the capacities of their governments to tackle challenges emerging from within, or outside of, state boundaries. Much attention has been paid both to the danger posed by the growth of radical Islam and to investigating ways to combat its spread. NBR has produced a plethora of research and analysis that explores Islamist terrorism in Asia, monitors its evolution, and assesses the implications for U.S. national security interests.
Muslim Asia and U.S. Security Interests is one of the core research areas addressed by the Muslim Asia Initiative.
