In partnership with Dialogue Society Leicester Branch, Centre for Hizmet Studies is launching the report entitled, ‘a Hizmet Approach to Rooting out Violent Extremism’, detailing another approach to confronting violent extremism claiming an Islamic justification.
The publication offers researchers, policy makers and journalists a summary of Hizmet’s theological refutation of violent extremism. It demonstrates that the core teachings of Hizmet act as a positive counter-narrative to extremist ideology.
Drawing attention to the challenges associated with linear, traditional, reactive policy-making directly aimed at defeating violent extremist ideology, the publication explains the nature and features of Hizmet’s deradicalisation by default approach, which pro-actively addresses both facets of the radicalisation process: ideology and inculcation.
William Baldet is the chair and discussant.
