CONNEKT studies the contexts of the emergence of radicalisation and violent extremism (VE) in the MENA region and the Balkans in relation to seven pre-identified drivers: Religion, economic deprivation, political grievances, culture and leisure opportunities, digital literacy, territorial inequalities, and transnational dynamics.
The project maps and establishes interrelationships and specific significance of these seven potential drivers within three different levels of analysis (macro-level, meso-level and micro-level). This framework aims at building a cumulative knowledge of the complex phenomenon of radicalisation: Going from macro-level to meso-level to micro-level, findings are each time included at the next stage as a starting point.
This report shares the findings of the meso-level research activities conducted by CONNEKT in Bosnia and Herzegovina and its three case studies: two schools under one roof, organised groups of football fans, and youth supporters of online Salafi influencers
