This paper is the third edition of the Annual Review of online jihadist propaganda produced by the European Union’s Internet Referral Unit (EU IRU) at Europol.

The Review covers the period from 1 January to 31 December 2019 and outlines the major trends and developments in the propaganda of the most prominent Sunni jihadist organisations – the Islamic State (IS) and al-Qaeda (AQ) – as well as their affiliates and offshoots. In particular, the review aims to analyse how these organisations have responded to shifting political realities and attempted to overcome setbacks. It further identifies the dominant themes exploited by the groups during this period.
