Event details

Sociology seminar

This talk will involve a discussion about some doctoral research findings, which explored radicalisation in the UK. There will be a particular focus upon certain under researched elements of radicalisation, which can lead towards violent extremism, such as the value of culture and subculture. There will also be an emphasis on how adopting a multi-disciplinary approach enabled an understanding of the topic in a way not previously considered. The issues discussed will be underpinned using qualitative empirical data collected during the doctoral research.
