Research output: Chapter in Book / Report / Conference proceedingChapterAcademic


Oppressive socialization approach views specific forms of women's commitment and involvement in terrorism as a reflection of “male practice.” It highlights women's passivity in radicalization processes, leading to controversial conclusions with respect to her (in)ability to make personal choices and decisions. Alternatively, it attributes a woman's radicalization to patriarchal models of socially desirable behavior in terms of submissiveness and maternal‐sacrificial code.
