Abstract

This panel is constructed around the hypothesis that the increased attention to quantitative and social psychological research may have sidelined first person narratives and accounts of motivational beliefs, and that researchers of political violence would do well by investing more in qualitative, dynamic, temporal narratives and analyses again. The panel welcomes especially papers which address the role of religion and ideological conviction in radicalization processes and draw from empirical research on first-person narratives and accounts.
