This double module has doctoral students working simultaneously with classical theoretical texts and with more recent works, in the first module, on the phenomenon of radicalization and the processes of deradicalization and political disengagement and, in the second module, on state policies in fighting against terrorism (military interventions, diplomatic ploys, programs to prevent radicalization and the technique of deradicalization) .While the social and political demand for these themes is growing under the combined effect of the multiplication of terrorist attacks by the Islamic State and some successes of jihadist Salafism in the world, it is also just as urgent to arm social science students, whether specializing in international relations, political science, sociology or social psychology with tools, data and concepts designed to understand and explain these phenomena. Furthermore, it is also a matter of reflecting on the question of political violence, and ways of examining it from a social science perspective. Without dismissing psychological approaches to violence, the training module will stress the need to include radicalization phenomena in their historical, cultural and social mix and the importance of explaining some turning points or bifurcations amongst individuals and groups. Thus, we will endeavour to comprehend the practical reasoning at the root of an individual's commitment to radical action, terrorism, violence against oneself, etc.
The modules will be in English.
