Detail

Occasional Paper 97 employs a criminological framework (Situational Action Theory) to understand vulnerability and resilience to Al Qa’ida influenced violent extremism; and distinguishes between indicators and causal factors of criminal and violent behaviour.  It also explores what transferable knowledge can be applied from youth gangs, new religious movements and violent radical activism.
