Dr. Antonio Giustozzi's (RUSI) speech during EFSAS Side-event at 40th Session of the UNHRC


Dr. Antonio Giustozzi, an independent researcher, Visiting Professor at King's College London, Associate Fellow at the Royal United Services Institute (RUSI), and Associate Researcher at the Italian Institute for International Political Studies, further analysed the ongoing growing terrorism in Afghanistan and Pakistan and the threat to security in South Asia. He provided a theoretical framework to the genesis of state-sponsored terrorism, arguing that internal conflicts are an important drive for terrorists, since in some countries clashes between various social factions and communities could provide fuel, which are used to ignite a spark of initiative for terrorists to penetrate.
