Propaganda’s Place in Strategic Communication: The Case of ISIL’s Dabiq Magazine

What is it about?

This paper examines how propagandists develop their messages strategically to achieve strategic results. For instance, ISIL used its English language propaganda magazine to compete with similar groups like the Muslim Brotherhood to obtain recruits and material resources. This is currently a new way of examining propaganda.

Why is it important?

As the Russian interference in the recent US presidential election demonstrates, propaganda is cheap and effective. Therefore, propaganda will become more common and prevalent.
