Diaspora can be defined as follows (Dictionary.com, 2021):
Any group migration or flight from a country or region; any group that has been dispersed outside its traditional homeland, especially involuntarily, as Africans during the trans-Atlantic slave trade; and any religious group living as a minority among people of the prevailing religion.
Examples of diaspora populations could include Jewish people all over the world; African-Americans and others of African descent brought to the Americas in the Trans-Atlantic slave trade; and refugee groups driven from their homes as a result of civil war.
In this assignment, you will identify, describe, and examine the issue of radicalization. Review RAND Corporation’s Conference Study on radicalization of diaspora risk populations. Another available resource is the article, Radicalisation in the Diaspora: Why Muslims in the West Attack Their Host Countries (WP).
In 2–3 pages, address the following:
- Discuss why some diaspora populations are at risk of radicalization. Identify some risk factors that make these populations vulnerable to radicalization.
- Identify some potential public policy approaches to mitigate radicalization. Develop some recommendations for implementation. When proposing policies, make sure that they are not too broad and are designed to specifically address the issues that you have identified.
- Discuss how potential policy approaches suited for mitigating risk populations with one worldview may not be suited for mitigation of other risk populations espousing other worldviews.
- Discuss what factors may shape a particular worldview for members of the diaspora populations that you have discussed.
