Terrorism and radicalisation
What motivates young people to join an extremist or terrorist movement? What is the best way to fight terrorism, and how have countries dealt with it in the past? How much data can intelligence services collect on citizens if it means preventing attacks?
Insight into such issues is of great importance if society is to be able to take adequate action against terrorism and radicalisation. Utrecht-based researchers contribute to a better understanding from various angles.
