Meissner, Cordula ; Wallner, Franziska

In: Bulletin VALS-ASLA, 2019, vol. 109, p. 11-31

Literacy skills especially may more directly reflect a shared...

Despite the remarkable quantity and variety of the research on jihadist identities, the state of the research remains disparate and fragmented. That is why the insights gained only insufficiently contribute to a deepening of our understanding of this phenomenon. Such a convergence requires, in a first step, a systematization of the relevant theoretical models and studies. The present contribution...
