Publication "Legitimation und Mobilisierung in dschihadistischen Texten" (Ger)

Apr 06, 2021

How can violent jihad in the name of religion be justified? Jihadist authors also grapple with this question. In doing so, they pursue the goal of legitimizing their actions on the basis of the sharia and of winning further followers for their struggle. Based on selected Arabic-language sources, this Islamic studies study analyzes in detail the jihadist jurisprudential argumentation for jihad.

Petra Nendwich's publication is part of our series: ISPK-Studien zur Terrorismusforschung (Volume 2).
