The ISMU Foundation is currently carrying out a research project on radicalisation processes involving young people, both of Muslim affiliation and converted ones. The study aims at contributing to the understanding of the possible dynamics involved in the process of radicalisation, shedding light on the multiplicity and heterogeneity of factors and dimensions that account for its complexity, which require avoiding every reductionism.
The attempt is to grasp the phenomenon both in a broader and comparative perspective, taking into account other forms of past and present radicalisms and the different phases of jihadims, and the specificities linked to the most recent forms of recruitment.
The study will include a desk research analysis and a field research. The latter will be conducted through interviews with privileged witnesses, in order to investigate the role played by different actors and processes of socialization, specifically within the family and THE religious sphere, in the dynamics of radicalisation.
