TEDx talk given 18 June 2016. Video released 31 August 2016.
Violent extremist groups and terrorist organisations destabilize civil society and cause devastation globally. Current trends have led many people to not just fear these global networks, but also to question why individuals join groups such as ISIS. Erin Marie Saltman discusses the push and pull factors which draw people into these organisations, and talk about new innovative ways of preventing and countering processes of radicalisation.
