Jacob Zenn’s most recent book is “Northern Nigeria’s Boko Haram: The Prize in al-Qaeda’s African Strategy.” This extraordinarily violent jihadist group is firmly planted in northern Nigeria and became infamous because of their kidnapping of over 250 teenage girls who, after four months, still have not been recovered.

Zenn is an analyst of African and Eurasian Affairs for The Jamestown Foundation as well as a consultant on the Countering Violent Extremism. He also serves as a non-resident research fellow of the Center for Shanghai Cooperation Organization Studies in Shanghai, China, as well as a specialist in international law and practices related to the freedom of association at the International Center for Not-For-Profit Law where he has written several works regarding association in the digital age and commentary on law reform in South Sudan. He possesses experience working with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) in Malaysia, an international law firm in Thailand and served as a program supervisor at a university and educational training center in Duhok, Iraq.
