Why do seemingly normal young men and women leave their jobs, friends, family, and safe and secure homes in the West to travel abroad, often through treacherous conditions, to join murderous groups like the Islamic State? What motivates them to put their lives on the line for the organisation? Is it a commitment to ideology? Is it a search for belonging and identity? Is it a desire
or status? Are they in need of excitement in their lives and seeking an element of fun? Do they have a thirst for blood?
This talk will draw upon empirical research in the field, interviews with terrorists themselves, accoun...ts from those who have witnessed the horrors on the ground in places like Mosul and Raqqa, and begin to unravel the complex threads of radicalisation towards violent extremism.
Dr Suraj Lakhani is a lecturer at the University of Sussex, and also holds the role of Director of the Sussex Terrorism and Extremism Research Network. Over the past 10 years, working in the field for various think tanks and university institutes, Suraj has researched topics including radicalisation, counter-terrorism policy, online extremism, and the crime-terror nexus. During his doctoral thesis,
Suraj interviewed a large number of former violent extremists to better understand their motivations.
