VIDEO: What is so Religious about Religious Terrorism?

PRIO Religion Seminars


11 December 2012

When is terrorism "religious"? Are "religious terrorist" more likely to be indiscriminate and intrasigent? How does adopting the term "religious terrorism" impact on policy?

This seminar was organised as part of a 2012-seminar series on scrutinizing the role on religion in conflict and peacebuilding. Dr Jeroen Gunning (Durham Univeristy) discusses the vality of a clear distincition between the secular and the religious, and the implications our use of these concepts have in understanding terrorism. Jacob Høigilt (FAFO) provides comments to the talk. Greg Reichberg (PRIO) chairs the event.
