  • Islamic Radicalization in Belgium

    While the total number of Muslims in Belgium is estimated at less than a million, far less than countries like France and Germany, the country’s sparse population means Muslims comprise approximately 6 percent of the country’s inhabitants. A complicating factor is the preexisting divide in the country between the Dutch-speaking North (Flanders) and primarily French-speaking South (Wallonia). This article examines the ongoing issue of radicalization among Muslims in Belgium and how the preexisting divide within Belgian politics plays a role in addressing the issue.

  • Radicalization in Prisons and Mosques in France

    France has the largest Islamic population in Europe and one of the largest percentages of total population. While the Arab Spring and associated conflict in the Middle East have triggered a significant influx of migrants into the country, France has been a destination for immigrants from its former colonies like Morocco and Algeria since the second half of the twentieth century. While many issues regarding radicalization stem from migration stretching back decades, the rapid increase in immigrants from war-torn areas, combined with prevalent Islamist extremism, presents extremely serious issues for the French government.
