‘De-radicalisation’ – Scientific insights for policy

Publicationdate: 04/07/2017

Following the terrorist attacks in Madrid (2004) and London (2005), ‘radicalisation’ has become part of the political discourse in Europe. Many European governments took initiatives to counter violent extremism. But the range of measures often lacks conceptual clarity and empirical validation.

The aim of this book is to make policy answers to violent extremism more evidence-based. The Flemish Peace Institute asked seven international scholars to review the state of the art of empirical research on ‘radicalisation’. These findings were then discussed with practitioners from Flanders (Belgium). This fruitful dialogue resulted in policy implications and recommendations, both at the end of each chapter and in the final conclusions of this volume.

The combination of insights from researchers and those working in the field makes this a relevant volume for decision makers, practitioners and researchers.
