This subject examines how and why people become so radicalised that they wish to kill others, and often themselves in the process. It is one of the most intractable issues facing people engaged in counter-terrorism activities today. Without knowing why a person becomes radicalised the process of de-radicalisation cannot start and counter-radicalisation strategies cannot be formulated. Students will therefore study radicalisation, how the process can be reversed (de-radicalisation) and what can be done to mitigate against people becoming radicalised (counter-radicalisation).
