How should we understand the psychology behind violence and hate? This course focuses on understanding radicalization processes, including psychological perspectives on the role of motivation, ideology, identity, and risk factors. Characteristics and mechanisms of violent extremist groups are considered with specific focus on unique intervention and preventive methodologies developed in Sweden. Case studies illustrate key points and offer a complex understanding of influencing factors and relevant theoretical concepts.
