Current research and some perspectives

The stagnating integration of immigrant groups, the insufficient acceptance of Muslims and the lacking respect for them are assumed to constitute a breeding ground for radicalisation as well as a threat for democracy. Certain groups of Muslim youngsters are susceptible for radical ideas. They cherish anti-democratic convictions as they show a tendency to violence. In Rotterdam e.g., nearly half of the population is of non-Dutch origin. Under Muslim youth, the self-exclusion risks are limited but real as well. Looking for their identity, many of them started a religious quest. The manifold wells they draw upon vary from orthodox-radical to moderate-democratic ones.
