How States Address Extremism: The Policies of De-radicalization in the 21st Century
Academics Responsible:
Dr. Christie Kenneth, Professor, Royal Roads University, Canada.
Mr. Haval Ahmad, Associate Faculty, School of Humanitarian Studies, Royal Roads University, Canada.

This symposium deals with the controversial subject of de-radicalization as a tool of the state/Governments in modifying/changing political behavior. The symposium specifically focuses on how these governments use counter-terrorism measures to address individuals’ extremism and radicalization. Case studies of a comparative nature, including Western versus Non-Western examples, are particularly welcome to shed light on this phenomenon. We will focus on the theory and practice concerning certain questions that are currently inadequately addressed.
These include but are not limited to:
1) What is the context driving such measures from a country, regional and global perspective?
2) How Successful have State policies been at changing extremist forms of behavior?
3) What appears to work best in these scenarios and why?
What potential and real impact do such policies have on human rights and the rule of law?
4) Are there political and historical antecedents for state behavior in such measures and what if any lessons have been learned from these?
Deadline: 3 May 2021
