Daesh and the “new” terror recruits
50 years of terrorism research has failed to identify a terrorist profile. Research in this field has pointed out the incredible variety of individual psychology and socio-demographic features. More than anything, we have thus far believed that terrorists are not crazy, are usually idealists who end up using violence in pursuit of their political goals. Emerging data on the Daesh recruits in Europe seem to contradict these conventional assumptions in that: many of them have criminal backgrounds, little ideological and religious knowledge, come from disadvantaged socio-economic groups and some seem to suffer from psychological problems. Are we dealing with a paradigm shift? Or is it a regional specificity? After all, some studies have observed clear differences among European countries with regard to socio-economic background. What are the profiles and the drivers of jihadists and terrorists here in Austria and in our immediate vicinity? What are the connections between the scenes?
