Edien Bartels – Eén dochter is beter dan duizend zonen (incl. english summary)

In haar proefschrift uit 1993, “Eén dochter is beter dan duizend zonen’.

Radicalization Series – Part III The state, secularism and securitization

In this third part of the radicalization series, I will take up an issue raised in part II; the need for critically analyzing the role of the state in counter-radicalization.

The Dutch Iraq Report – No Mandate, No Introspection

You don’t have to be a Muslim radical, or a radical or a Muslim to criticize the state of affairs in the past. But that almost 7 years after still no introspection takes place shows most of all that the tunnelvision still exists: the whole Iraq war is reduced to a matter of international laws and agreements.

Islam and Media & Islam in the Media

The Islam and Media conference in Boulder (US) hosted many scholars from a broad range of disciplines. Unfortunately ‘the media’ were absent although they are very much interested in radicalization and media.
