A Research Report
Via the Report:
"The present study aims to cast new light on the motivations and trajectories of young women who become radicalized in Quebec based on interviews with the women themselves, close friends and acquaintances, and family members.
The present report has two main sections, each containing two chapters. The purpose of the first section is to better define the composition and contours of “radicalization leading to violence”. Its first chapter (3.1) clarifies the concepts and definitional issues around such radicalization. Its second chapter (3.2) demonstrates the value of approaching the topic from the angle of gender and gender-differentiated analysis.
The second section, containing the third and fourth chapters, deals more precisely with women’s involvement today in radical Islamism and certain jihadist groups."
