Jihadi terrorism and the radicalisation challenge in Europe

Post thumbnail print


Often dubbed as a ‘global threat’, most observers analyze the terrorist threat as a patchwork of self-radicalizing local troups with international contacts but without a central engine or any central  organizational design. Jihadi terrorism is composed of one major root cause in an enabling global environment and a multitude of local root causes depending on the countries involved. Focusing on the situation of jihadi terrorism and radicalization in Europe, this volume looks at the growing tendency of self-radicalization and self-recruitment of individuals. It provides both a precise state of the threat as well as a thorough analysis of the radicalization process. Aimed at an audience of policy makers, academia and think tanks, it combines a theoretical approach with novel thinking and ‘out of the box’ policy recommendations.
