Radicalism and extremism continue to create considerable concern and conflict around the world. An expanding field of study is looking at the roots and influences on what motivates these groups rather than just the shocking outcomes. What personal and social relationships and social-cultural situations have led to people feeling like outsiders? What political and governmental decisions have fuelled these circumstances? We will hear from three experts in the field, Nasir Tamara, Carla Power, and Kylie Moore-Gilbert, to gain a deeper insight into this complex issue.

Radikalisme dan ekstremisme terus menimbulkan kekhawatiran dan konflik yang cukup besar di seluruh dunia. Bidang studi yang berkembang melihat pada akar dan pengaruh pada apa yang memotivasi kelompok-kelompok ini, daripada melihat hasil yang mengejutkan. Apa hubungan pribadi, sosial dan situasi sosial budaya yang menyebabkan orang merasa seperti orang luar? Keputusan politik dan pemerintah apa yang memicu keadaan ini? Dengar dari tiga ahli di bidangnya, Nasir Tamara, Carla Power, dan Kylie Moore-Gilbert, untuk mendapatkan wawasan yang lebih dalam tentang masalah yang kompleks ini.
