Elisa Impara (2016) “Radicalisation and Subcultures: a Theoretical Analysis”

This article will ask whether we could talk about radicalised subcultures in relation to recent cases of young people deliberately flee to Syria. To achieve this it will: 1. Overview the concept of subcultures and identify which elements can be linked to the experience of young people engaging with extremism; 2. Suggest how the philosophical concept of transgression can cast a different perspective on the reasons why young people engage with radical practices.

Keywords: subcultures, radicalisation, transgression, excitement, tribe.
