Anti-Westernism & Terrorism

Understanding drivers for radicalisation into political violence, a historical analyses.

Research has led to the understanding of factors that lead to radicalisation. It is understood why and how individuals are recruited to join violent organisations. So far research has mostly focused on individual trajectories. Factors like alienation and exclusion have been proven to be important. But according to Peter Knoope this understanding has limited value. Explaining the movement and the large support base requires to take the analyses to the next level. He will therefor dig into the deeper layers of motivational factors that lead to the traction of ISIS and Al Qaeda.
