Thursday, July 13, 2017: 9:00 AM-10:45 AM
Gilbert Scott Building - G466 (University of Glasgow)
The beliefs and ideas which make people interested in joining radical movements are a hotly debated issue in current research. The panel aims to discuss norms and values which could lead to an affiliation with extremist groups, drawing on issues such as religion, ideology, psychology, and gender narratives. The papers of this panel discuss theoretical background and practical examples alike, with the aim to provide new insights for counterterrorism and de-radicalisation.
