Yvan Guichaoua invited to comment on recent changes to Boko Haram's tactics

DEV lecturer, Yvan Guichaoua was recently invited by the media specialist Daniel Schneidermann to comment on the recent changes in Boko Haram's military tactics and communication strategy, notably in the social media. The various audiences targeted by the movement and the underlying political messages broadcast reveal Boko Haram's internationalisation strategy as well as mimicry with the Islamic State, which could be the prelude for more active cooperation between the jihadist movements.
