Podcast: Professor Tahir Abbas – The making of a Jihadi terrorist

In this podcast, Professor Tahir Abbas discusses some of the factors which help radicalise young Muslims.

The Istanbul Fatih University lecturer sees a link between marginalised young Muslims, drawn towards extremism and dislocated white working class youths, “left behind” by the juggernaut of the neo-liberal economy, who are attracted to far right movements.

Professor Abbas took part in a 23 June Parliamentary Assembly hearing in Strasbourg on ‘Preventing Islamophobia while combating radicalisation among young people.’
