The discussion this month is with Amar Amarasingam, Assistant Professor in the School of Religion at Queen’s University in Ontario, Canada, and Senior Research Fellow at the Institute for Strategic Dialogue. Amar has conducted years of research with foreign fighters and neo-Nazis around the world.

There is no one profile for an extremist, but the value of interview-based research has brought Amar a deeper understanding of why extremists are moved to engage in transnational activism. A common thread with conspiracy theorists is a shared sense of moral urgency. Today’s episode explores what this means for the complex problems we face globally.
