Europe's 'Other' Youth: Mapping the Phenomenon of Young Muslim Radicalization

Stemming from our broader work on the Middle East in Sweden, a lot of which is also focusing on youth, this cluster of research activities takes a critical, theoretical and practical approach to processes of Muslim youth radicalization.

Our perspective is premised on our experience of the shortcomings of the securitization of policies towards young Muslims in Sweden and, more broadly, Europe revolves around our belief that we need to take a proactive and positive stance, to develop mechanisms of listening to and understanding young Muslims, their aspirations and grievances centers on the importance of better studying youth radicalism, the way violent jihad is mediated and communicated.
