December 2021 | Dynamic Dimensions of Radicalization and Violent Extremism in Sabah, Malaysia

This month, RESOLVE highlights recommended readings from one of our latest Policy Note, “Dynamic Dimensions of Radicalization and Violent Extremism in Sabah, Malaysia.” Author Samuel Henkin advances a granular review of the dynamics underlying radicalization risk in Sabah, Malaysia, in order to extrapolate an analysis of emerging areas of threat and risk of violent extremism facing Southeast Asia. The policy note offers an opportunity to better understand current and future threats and risks of violent extremism facing Southeast Asia and identifies important trends and recommendations for policymakers and practitioners in mitigating the spread of violent extremism and radicalization to violence in Sabah. This What We’re Reading digest was recommended by the author to give more background on radicalization to violent extremism, terrorism and counterterrorism policy in Southeast Asia, violent extremism in Sabah, Malaysia, and migration in the tri-border.
