Islam and Salafism


Salafism is one of the most radicalised forms of belief and practice in the broad spectrum of Islam. EFD's Ahmad Mansour, along with Claudia Dantschke and Thomas Schmidinger from FEI participated in a panel discussion on Salafism on 15th March.

Speakers provided a general introduction to Salafism and discussed its attractiveness to young people.

Ahmad offered policy recommendations based on his experience as a Salafist during his youth in Israel and from his current work countering radicalisation in Muslim communities throughout Germany.
