Forthcoming my dissertation about my multilevel field-research in the Salafi-Scene of Germany and Europe.

This empirical study is about the Salafi Movement in Germany and Europe. It includes the discussion of 175 conducted interviews with considerable Salafi-Preacher and Salafi-Actor. It shows for instance their social backgrounds, their aims to become adherents of the Salafi Movement and – in parts – their interests of taking part in the so called Jihad in Syria and Iraq. Based on the empiricism of the conducted interviews, this survey gives several de-radicalisation-recommendations and prevention-approaches for the theory and for the practice as well.

The publication occurs after the doctorate has been conferred in Summer 2017.
