Session 10

Insights on Radicalization

The theme of this session is new insights and suggestions on mechanisms involved in radicalization leading to religious extremism. Scholars have tried to explore the issue of radicalization through different theoretical approaches and emphasizing different levels of analysis. Some emphasize structural factors such as globalization and weakening of traditional communities, and how that may lead to a search for identity and belonging.

Others see social networks as essential for the spread of radical ideas. Similarly, the rise and fall of IS and terrorist attacks across Europe have reignited an interesting discussion in the study of extremism concerning the role of religion. We warmly invite papers that offer a critical perspective that builds upon, critique or further emphasizes, theoretically or empirically, the existing insights and suggestions on mechanisms involved in radicalization leading to religious extremism.
