Current Trends in Radicalization and De-radicalization

Current Trends in Radicalization

and De-radicalization

A major component of counter-terrorism studied today is the attempt to identify the processes that motivate an individual to perpetrate acts of terrorism. This process has been broadly termed radicalization, and properly understanding the way in which someone becomes radicalized can have immeasurable impact on the future of counter-terrorism, with most countries around the world contending with the phenomenon of home-grown terrorists committing attacks.

This workshop will delve into the concept of radicalization, utilizing expertise from around the world to build a picture of today's trends in radicalization. Panelists will also share ideas and experiences of de-radicalization in hopes of identifying probable solutions to a major problem facing states around the world.
