Policy Brief der DGAP: Leveraging Islam and Internal Conflict

As part of a partner project of the Documentation Centre Political Islam with the German Council on Foreign Relations (DGAP), author Miriam Katharina Heß analyses in a policy brief above all the role of Chechen President Ramzan Kadyrov, the internal conflicts and Chechen fighters in the Ukraine war on both sides. Kadyrov positions himself as the mouthpiece of the Muslim population in Russia and as a mediator between the Putin government and the Middle East.

DGAP is committed to a sustainable German and European foreign and security policy based on democracy, peace and the rule of law. Founded in 1955, the organisation is independent of party politics and shapes the foreign policy debate as a research and membership organisation.

The Policy Brief can be read in German and English (externe Links).
