State of the Art Conference: Violent Radicalisation and Terrorism
Violent Radicalisation and Terrorism are on the news on a daily basis with concerns expressed about young people involved in international terrorist movements. The process by which violent radicalisation takes place is complex and continuing to be investigated whilst counter-terrorism experts continue to try and minimise the risks and maximise public safety.
Many factors are thought to be influential, including social assets, depressive symptoms, discrimination, criminality, and vulnerability to sympathies towards violent radicalisation and terrorism. There are many other paradigms to bring together.
