The North Caucasus Insurgency: Dead or Alive? Authored by Dr. Emil Aslan Souleimanov.
View the Executive Summary

Combining analysis of the structural and up-to-date sources of the ongoing insurgency in Russia's North Caucasus, this monograph illustrates that despite their substantial weakening in the recent years, locally operating Salafi-jihadist groups are still alive and likely to remain so in the years to come. The monograph also emphasizes the salience of the local socio-cultural codes—retaliation, hospitality, and silence—that have provided, harsh reprisals notwithstanding, for pro-insurgent violent mobilization and local support.
