Lawrence Rubin, an associate professor in the Sam Nunn School of International Affairs, has co-authored with Nathaniel Allen and Michael Marcusa an article titled, "How States Foster Violent Extremism and What the United States Should Do About It" in Lawfare, June 16.

Authoritarian rule through patronage and repression can create political opportunities for extremists by generating popular resentment and causing local elites to abandon their state patrons, leaving a power vacuum. This disruption and disorder may take years to come to the surface. When Qaddafi seized power in 1969, Libya’s Cyrenaica region, a bastion of resistance against colonial rule and support for the former regime, became politically and economically marginalized.
