Radicalization in the Asia-Pacific region: Themes and Concepts

Claire Smith, Lucy Resnyansky, Craig Taylor

Research output: Contribution to journalEditorial


This special issue seeks to contribute to the understanding of radicalisation in the Asia-Pacific region. It emerges from papers presented at the symposium Radicalisation, Extremism and Social Media: The Asia-Pacific Context held at Flinders University in South Australia on 19-23 August 2019. In this special issue, we aim to provide news insights into the diversity of socio-economic, political, ideological, technological and cultural systems, as determining the diversity of the causes, mechanisms, and manifestation of radicalisation. We also seek to demonstrate the utility of a variety of research paradigms and methodologies, from in-depth qualitative analysis of life histories of prominent leaders of religious radical movements in Indonesia to the use of computational methods and automated analysis tools for the analysis of large data sets as manifestations of the mutual co-radicalisation of the supporters and opponents of immigration in Australia.
