With terrorist attacks proliferating across the world, more than ever there is a need for knowledge on the drivers of violent extremism. While these might be a mix between individual and socioeconomic elements based on the local context there is also a discussion about the role of ideology. In this ISDP Forum, Professor Mohamed Tozy of Sciences Po Aix will give a presentation that seeks to conduct a historical sociology of Islamist movements, to deconstruct their theological and political discourses.
After Professor Tozy’s presentation, he will be joined onstage by Ms Fredrika Ornbrant, Ambassador and Counter Terrorism Coordinator at the Swedish Ministry for Foreign Affairs, and Ms Amina Bouayach, Ambassador of the Kingdom of Morocco to Sweden. The ambassadors will give Swedish and Moroccan perspectives on the issue.
