ALTERNATIVES OF BOKO HARAM TO THE CONTEMPORARY MODERN NIGERIAN STATE

The Postmodern Caliphate or the Terrorist Semi-State?

Daniel SVOBODA

This article examines Boko Haram’s alternatives to the contemporary secular Nigerian state of Westphalian style. This article is focused on analysing the relationship between Boko Haram and the secular state that they reject. The reality of what Boko Haram in Nigeria has managed to create, rather than a caliphate, corresponds to a terrorist semi-state (TSS). Therefore, the article also performs an analysis of Boko Haram from the perspective of the TSS concept.
