Today we are launching Talib or Taliban? Indonesian students in Pakistan and Yemen, which looks at whether Indonesian students studying at Islamic institutions in Pakistan and Yemen pose a risk in terms of future patterns of extremism in Indonesia. The report is based on fieldwork in Indonesia, Pakistan and Yemen.

The report is authored by myself, Professor Samina Yasmeen from the Centre for Muslim States and Societies at the University of Western Australia and Dr Sarah Phillips from the Centre for International Security Studies at the University of Sydney. The principal researcher for the project is Soluhudin, an Indonesian journalist and researcher.

Below is a short video executive summary of the report.  This is in itself a bit of an experiment, so I would welcome any feedback (on the concept, not the speaker).
