RADICALISATION, JIHADISM and SALAFISM: Between Religion and Politics

Foreign policy and International Relations
Date: Thursday, 04 May 2017 12:00 - 14:00

Venue: Dialogue Platform, Rue Montoyer 31/2, 1000 Brussels  |  City: Brussel, Belgium

As the horrible terror attacks shaken the cities of Europe, no topic has captured the public attention as much as  the global jihadism. While much has been said about the way jihadists behave, their ideology remains poorly understood.

In his presentation, Dr. Mohamed-Ali ADRAOUI will be providing the answers to the following critical questions on the route of understanding this contemporary matter:

- What are the religious justifications to violence in schools referring to the Salafi creed and this can help to explain current situations of conflicts nowadays?

- What is the part of 'strict' political considerations in the Salafi and Jihadi mobilizations today?

- What is the role of Salafi beliefs in the current radicalization processes' and what can we learn from an empirical investigation on Jihadists today?
