Panel Political Violence, Conflict and Transnational Activism


This panel seeks to explore transnational activism in its different forms and the challenges it represents for their communities and state authorities in both homeland and hostland. At the violent end of the spectrum, the panel explores jihadi ’foreign fighters’ in relation to ISIS. At the non-violent end, the panel examines political and non-political transnationalism of diaspora communities and the nexus between homeland and hostland policies. What are the implications of grass-root political transnationalism and non-political transnationalism for diaspora communities at home and abroad? How are transnational violent and non-violent forms of activism shaping the counterterrorism policies of their home country and host country? How can mobilisation and non-mobilisation trajectories of violent transnational non-state actors be explained and how are they understood by the state and used for counterterrorism purposes?
