Religious Radicalisation: The Ways of Norwegian Jihad
Theoretically, the paper is based on classical sociology of religion sources, historical and religious explorations of the Crusade-Jihad nexus and contemporary radicalisation research.
Empirically, the sources are interview and observation data from an on going evaluation study. The focus of the study is a longitudinal project aimed at preventing the recruitment of vulnerable young men from Norwegian secondary schools into violent extremist organisations. The paper will present preliminary findings from the research.
