From Rehabilitation to Recruitment
The Centre for Islamic Pluralism is pleased to note that The Macdonald Laurier Institute, a Canadian think-tank, has published a major article on prison Islamist radicalization that draws extensively on two CIP reports "Black America, Prisons and Radical Islam" (2008) and "A Guide to Shariah Law and Islamist Radicalization in Western Europe, 2007-2009" (2009), as well as CIP journalism on Canadian Muslims.
The Macdonald Laurier report, titled "From Rehabilitation to Recruitment," was written by Alexandre Wilner, to whom we extend our appreciation. The report may be accessed at http://www.macdonaldlaurier.ca/files/pdf/FromRehabilitationToRecruitment.pdf or at http://www.islamicpluralism.org/documents/1653.pdf. The Macdonald Laurier website also offers an executive summary in French as well as English.
Articles on the Macdonald Laurier report in The Globe and Mail and The National Post, Canada's national English-language dailies, may be accessed at http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/opinions/opinion/getting-ahead-of-prison-radicalization/article1759465/ in the first instance and http://www.nationalpost.com/news/Prisons+breeding+ground+terror+report/3684970/story.html in the second.
