The European Commission yesterday released an ICSR/King’s College London study on how Islamist militants in Europe are recruited and mobilised. The study is entitled ‘Recruitment and Mobilisation for the Islamist Militant Movement in Europe’ and was commissioned by the EU in late 2006.
Based on extensive fieldwork in Britain, France and Spain, the report provides the most comprehensive picture to date of the methods through which Islamist militants in Europe mobilise their supporters and find new recruits. Along with three other studies, it will form the basis for EU policy-making on the issue of preventing violent radicalisation, thus bringing together knowledge and leadership to counter the growth of radicalisation and political violence.
An executive summary of findings and recommendations can be found below.
