Armed conflicts fought over Islamist claims have increased dramatically as a proportion of the total number of armed conflicts over the past two decades. This section explores the regional pattern of Islamist armed conflicts. Religiously framed conflicts are not necessarily about religion per se. There may, for example, be economic or power motives behind the religious arguments. Islamist intrastate armed conflicts are defined for the purposes of this chapter as conflicts between governments and rebels, in which at least one of the actors makes explicit Islamist demands regarding the control of government power or a specific area of territory.1
