Radicalization in South Asia: Context, Trajectories and Implications
(Thursday, January 16, 2020)

The Sasakawa Peace Foundation will host a seminar on Radicalization in South Asia, inviting the editors of the newly published book, Radicalization in South Asia: Context, Trajectories and Implications.

Negative effects and ramifications of international terrorist groups such as Al-Qaida and ISIL are increasingly becoming cross-border security issues. In Asia, such international terrorist groups are not only committing acts of violence but also their violent ideologies are also inspiring many radicalized local groups and young people. As a result, those radicalized local groups are more willing to affiliate with international terrorism groups. Considering the Dhaka terrorist attack in 2016 and the Sri Lanka Easter Sunday suicide bombings in 2019, despite the geographical distance, Japan cannot be immune from the risks of terrorism and violent acts committed by radicalized groups.

In this seminar, the editors will discuss violent extremism and terrorism in South Asia, giving an overview as well as the political and historical contexts in South Asia. This will be a great opportunity to learn about the reality and challenges of the issues surrounding terrorism and violent extremism. We look forward to seeing you at the event. Details of the event are as follows:
