A psychoanalytical reading of religious radicalization in the context of Islam

Description: Radicalization is often viewed as an identity story. By the use of a qualitative study I plan to interview professionals and participants who returned from Syria. The aim of the study is to grasp a better understanding on radicalization and deradicalization/disengagement, and what jihad means for the participants of the study. This research is conducted from a psychoanalytical point of view in which the relationship between identity and religiion will be clarified.
