Title: The Islamic State and the Islamic citizenship

Contact: Alberto Priego and Josep Buades

Description: 

Since its independence, the Muslim states has been developing a model of political participation that has not resonated among populations. Firstly, the proposal was based on authoritarian regimes. Secondly, this national model was carried out from a European and state-centric perspective  The Arab Revolutions, have highlighted the contradiction underlying in this model.

Title: (Des)radicalization of Islamic Terrorists from a psychological perspective

Contact: Alberto Priego and Josep Buades

Terrorism has become one of the most important threats. However its solution is not seen in the short term. Therefore, it is necessary to work in the prevention of radicalization of communities at risk.  Although it is true that some years ago radicalization was due to social causes, today the causes are mainly psychological. Thereby, de-radicalization process must have a psychological approach.
