Abstract and speakers

Extremism risk is associated with certain individuals, whose characteristics and circumstances appear to make them more susceptible to radicalisation than others. It's also associated with certain places, which seem to generate or attract radicalised individuals more than others. To avail ourselves of the full range of possible interventions against extremism, we need, therefore, to understand both the factors that contribute to individual susceptibility to extremism and the processes that support the emergence of extremism-enabling environments. This lecture will present results from two major new studies that consider the social and environmental determinants of extremist attitudes.
