Islamist Radicalisation in Europe and the Middle East: Reassessing the Causes of Terrorism, by George Joffé

Research output: Contribution to journalBook/Arts/Article reviewpeer-review

Abstract

(First paragraph) Radicalism, radicalization, violence, and terrorism have increasingly drawn the attention of scholars since the events of 11 September 2001. These scholars belong to various disciplines including: theology, political science, sociology, psychology, history, and other fields that provide important insights on such issues. Yet, although these different areas of study disagree about the appropriate use of the term `radicalization,´ they often assign this phenomena to the non-state realm while blending it with concepts of `extremism´ and `violence´. Some of these studies not only mix together and overlap radicalization with violence, but go further and identify radicalization and extremism specifically with Islamic doctrines “ as being responsible for violence in the Middle East and in European Muslim communities.
