Translated title of the contribution: The Nonviolent Threats of Radical Islamism. Hizb ut Tahrir in Great Britain (1986-2015)

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


After the 9/11 in the US and, in Europe, the Madrid (7/11/2004) and London
(7/7/2005) terrorist attacks, most States became aware of the need to
identify and collaborate with moderates inside the Muslim community.
However, several Islamic organizations were chosen (and financed) to fight
jihadist terrorism simply because they advocate for a non-violent approach,
despite the fact many of them still pursue an agenda contrary to principles
of the Rule of Law.
In this context, it is relevant to answer the following question: is Islamic
Radicalism ideology in its non-violent approach incompatible with liberal
democracy or is it an integration effort, bearing in mind the example of Hizb
ut Tahrir in Great Britain (1986-2015)?
On chapter one, it will be necessary to define the thesis object, the definition
of non-violent radical Islamism, and some operative concepts, considered
essential for the development of the PHD thesis.
Chapter two will analyze the objectives and strategy of non-violent Islamic
Radicalism that threaten liberal democracy.
Chapter three will assess the reason why these threats emerged and why
they are so difficult to combat — from lack of knowledge to the legitimization
of non-violent Islamic Radicalism by political decision-makers.
Chapter four will explore the radicalization process on Islamic extremism
and the combat against it.
Chapter five will analyze the impact of Hizb ut Tahrir — an Islamic group
that supports the ideology of non-violent Radical Islamism in Great Britain
from 1986 to 2015.
Chapter six will test the framework for political decision-makers to engage
with non-violent Islamic groups, which is based on two principles of the Rule
of Law.
Finally, the doctoral thesis conclusions will be drawn.
