This short article is the Research Brief for the full report: “Lights, Camera, Jihad: Al-Shabaab’s Western Media Strategy”, which is also available in this Portal. The Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism (START) wrote the brief and researchers at the International Centre for the Study of Radicalisation and Political Violence (ICSR) authored the full report.

The brief will be of use to researchers and practitioners interested in examining the use and influence of Social Media by radical groups.
