August 30, 2018

Author: Royal United Services Institute (RUSI)
Publication Date: October 2015

Summary: The purpose of this review is to offer a wide-ranging discussion of what causes violent extremism and how it develops and persists. Discussion of violent extremism is often fraught with assumptions and received wisdom that can potentially obscure underlying causes, with implications for government interventions and policy. This review therefore provides an independent critical analysis of the substantial academic literature on what causes violent extremism.
