Understanding Radicalization & Dynamics of Terrorist Networks Through Political-Psychology

By Mr. Louis Fink
In a field dominated by political science, the study of radicalisation and terrorism is often weakened due to the absence of areas such as political-psychology. Despite the field beginning to embrace a wider multi-disciplinary approach there are only a few scholars who commit themselves to the study of radicalisation and terrorism through the lens of political-psychology. This paper will demonstrate the invaluable benefit political-psychology provides in understanding radicalisation and terrorism networks when used in conjunction with other disciplines. As such, political-psychology allows one to determine the normality of accused terrorists and understand how they manage to overcome mechanisms of self-censure to commit acts of indiscriminate violence. In addition, political-psychology allows the outsider to understand the internal dynamics of terrorist networks like: dependency, collective identity, leadership, competition and both internal and external rivalry. When utilised in conjunction with other disciplines, political-psychology allows law enforcement agencies and scholars to understand the radicalisation process and both the internal and external dynamics of terrorist networks to a greater extent, thus highlighting its necessity in an area that is only increasing in prominence.



Is fate of Kurdish issue tied to Erdogan's future?


By Ms. Tulin Daloglu
Despite sending strong signals that he intends to run for the Turkish presidency in August, Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has again asserted that he remains undecided. He gathered his party’s lawmakers on April 16 to discuss the matter and announced, “I have not made my decision yet.” He added, “And I don’t approve of announcing names [for the presidential bid] at this point. There will be no chaos in the party if I decide to run or choose to stay [as the prime minister]. The most important thing is the institutional structure of our party.”
