Contemporary jihadism: a generational phenomenon

Contemporary jihadism can be described as a generational phenomenon, due to the young age of those involved in it, and to specific circumstances and characteristics concerning the generation they belong to.

The present paper seeks to provide an account of these peculiarities, analyzing the complex and multi-faceted phenomenon of radicalization and jihadism against the backdrop of the profound transformations that concern Western societies, and of the identity struggles linked to the process of integration and acceptance of Islam in the Western world in particular.
