Lecture/Seminar "Violence and the Good Life": Foreign Fighters in Syria and Spain 2017-08-16 11:00:00

This lecture puts current Jihadist war volunteers into historical perspective by comparing the foreign fighter phenomenon in contemporary Syria to the civil war in Spain (1936-39).
Many have assumed that modernity would produce rational, self-interested and expressive individuals and a peaceful, law-abiding world. The phenomenon of foreign fighters raised in liberal democratic societies therefore appears to be a pathology of modernity. Is it possible that violent radicalization represents an alternative “good life” to the dominant liberal narrative?
