Combating Religious Extremism in Central Asia: Short Documentary Film and Q&A with Director

Not In Our Name is a 28-minute documentary film produced by Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty about the issue of violent extremism and the participation of Central Asians in the war in Syria.

Apparently, nearly one-third of foreign fighters involved in Syria are/were from the former Soviet countries, and a majority of those were Central Asians. RFE/RL produced a series of TV shows based on interviews and focus groups with the families of foreign fighters and aired the series for local audiences in Central Asia. This documentary was made for Western audiences to showcase that project and provoke discussion on the topic.
