The round-table will conduct a comparative analysis of how recruitment of Muslims to the Islamic State is implemented, including commonalities and differences in different countries and regions. The following issues will be studied:

– the recruitment of women;

– the motivation and goals of those joining the Islamic State;

– methods of recruitment;

– the duration of activity within the IS, and reasons for leaving the IS;
