From Da'wa to Jihad: Breaking the Radicalization and Violence Cycle

From Da'wa to Jihad: Breaking the Radicalization and Violence Cycle

Understanding the cycle of radicalization and violence has never been more important than today; when the timing of the cycle has shortened and the leap from radicalization to violence and extremism is increasingly common. Analyzing the trends in radicalization, and the threat of violence, this workshop aims to understand the cycle of violence- and possibly offer ways to break it.
