How Indonesian Extremists Regroup
This report examines how extremist groups in Indonesia have responded and regrouped following increased pressure from police since the 2002 Bali bombing. Even with so many strikes against them, the report shows that extremists have been able to regroup under pressure and plot new operations, often drawing on friends in prison. Adversity has also brought most jihadi groups into contact with one another, undercutting some of the police progress in breaking up individual cells. Despite the major successes over the ten years since the Bali bombing, the report shows that violent extremism remains a serious problem that deserves ongoing attention.
