Rethinking Radicalisation


Auditorium Ivan Pictet
Maison de la paix, Geneva

How the West’s handling of perceived threats of a post-9/11 world affects youth people vulnerable to radicalisation? Guided by Professor Mohammad-Mahmoud Ould Mohamedou of the Graduate Institute, this documentary produced by Al Jazeera examines the contemporary question of political violence and the different policies that have been adopted over the past years, problematically and inconclusively, to address it and remedy its impact.

This documentary (2018, 26 minutes, in English), part of Al Jazeera six part series “Radicalised Youth”, will be followed by a panel discussion which includes:

  • Barbara Affolter Gómez, Senior Conflict & Human Rights Advisor, Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation, Federal Department of Foreign Affairs
  • Dan Davies, Film Director and Member of Black Leaf Films
  • Mohammad-Mahmoud Ould Mohamedou, Professor of International History, the Graduate Institute, Geneva
  • Riccardo Bocco, Professor of Anthropology and Sociology, the Graduate Institute, Geneva (moderator)

Entry is free, but seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.

This is the first film of our series of film-debates CINE@IHEID for the Spring semester. Mark the dates for our next screenings.
