Radicalisation, Counter-Radicalisation and De-Radicalisation



For nearly two decades since 9/11, policymakers and the academia alike have paid much attention to radicalisation and terrorism involving jihadist groups and Muslim actors. Despite costly military interventions and an array of counter measures and policies, transnational jihadism and its inspired acts of terrorism have not diminished, transpiring in the rise and fall of ISIS with new challenges, including the issue of foreign fighters and their families. The recent Christchurch terrorist attacks (March 2019) further have shown that radicalisation is not simply limited to groups and individuals basing themselves in jihadism and Islam. They add to the list of threats from multiple forms of extremism that exist in our societies. Overall, the situation calls for more comprehensive and evidence-based policy responses to address radicalisation and find ways towards de-radicalisation.

This one-day conference aims to explore:

Radicalisation, its causes, its various manifestations, and how different spaces enabled by globalisation have spread radicalisation

The experience of other countries in responding to radicalisation

The responses by Australian government and community to radicalisation

Emerging issues of responding to returning foreign fighters and their families exposed to terrorism in the wake of the fall of ISIS

The symposium therefore aims focuses on both research and policy in the areas of radicalisation, counter-radicalisation and de-radicalisation.
