Abstract

The First Part of the book, A Challenging Culture, presents the socio-cultural code in Sicily as observed in the Province of Caltanissetta. The most important structural and geographical factors that are culturally relevant are discussed. The Sicilian culture emerges gradually as a culture of control and challenge, and it is on the basis of this idea that Part II, From Challenge to Change, is developed.

Abstract

"Jihadist militants keep being a global threat. Many observers suggest that a transformation is likely to happen in their organisation, operation, mobilisation, and recruitment strategies, particularly after the territorial decline of the “Caliphate” of the “Islamic State.” This volume explores different aspects of the future trajectories of militant jihadism and the prospective transformation of this movement in and around Europe. The authors analyse the changing jihadist landscape and networks, and the societal challenges posed by both returned foreign terrorist fighters and those who have not returned to their countries of origin. Other topics of discussion are cyber jihadism, jihadist financing, women's position in and relevance for contemporary jihadism, the role of prisons in relation to radicalisation and militancy, and the changing theological dynamics. Based on recent empirical research, Militant Jihadism offers a solid scholarly contribution to various disciplines that study violence, terrorism, security, and extremism.
