Until the late 1980s, Soviet leaders after World War II regarded Hungary and other East-Central European countries as an extension of their own country’s frontiers. Threats to the security of an East European Communist regime, whether external or internal, were seen as threats to Soviet security as well. Talk will discuss whether under President Putin Russia is returning to the same paradigm?

As controversial as the term has become, combative Jihad in Islam is conceptually defensive. It is waged in self-defence and only when Islam or an Islamic community is mortally threatened or invaded by an outside force. No doubt, the ways in which it is deployed and conducted by such an entity as ‘Islamic State’ (IS) or what its originators have called khilafat in Iraq and Syria fall outside the parameters of mainstream Islam. However, this has not prevented a noticeable cluster of young Muslims from around the world joining IS and fighting for its declared Jihad. Whilst patriarchal in nature, IS has attracted, in addition to thousands of males, a good number of Muslim women from abroad to fight for its khilafat and Jihad.
