The Three Pillars of Radicalization: Needs, Narratives, and Networks

Organised by New York University Abu Dhabi Institute

What fuels radicalisation to violence? Is de-radicalisation a possibility? How can societies build sustainable peace and reinforce people’s commitment to living together in mutual tolerance, respect and dignity?

This panel discussion addresses these crucial questions by delineating the drivers of radicalisation: Individuals’ need for significance, ideological narratives and support networks.

Evidence collected across the globe suggests that when conjoined, these elements create a combustible psychological mixture that threatens social stability and global peace. Yet, interventions that reinforce these pillars can reverse this psychological process and mitigate contemporary terrorism.

Combining these insights, the panelists will discuss how needs, networks, and narratives can be successfully implemented by community-led initiatives to build societies resilient to unpredictability, divisiveness, and disasters.
