Webinar - Hybrid ideologies English

Background and aims

The increasingly fragmented nature of emerging violent ideologies and inter-linkages between all kinds of ideologies is generating a new phenomenon often referred to as ‘hybrid ideologies’. This relatively still unexplored phenomenon can be understood in different ways, including as the overlap of certain key elements in different ideologies, the alignment of different ideological groups to further a common goal (such as the removal of government) or the study of other groups’ (even opposed groups’) tactics. Another term being used in this context is the term “salad bar” extremism, referring to extremists drawing from sometimes contradictory or antithetical grievances, interests, and beliefs.

It is not a new insight that radicalisation processes take place not just within but also between groups and that intersections of certain ideological elements exist across different radical groups. These commonalities have been termed bridge narratives. They include anti-imperialism, anti-modernism, anti-universalism, anti-Semitism and anti-feminism and the idea of acting in (legitimate) resistance which justifies violence.

Building on former meetings and insights, a webinar series on Hybrid ideologies in German, French and English will focus on exploring the development of hybrid ideologies, particularly focusing on connective ideological elements and addressing the resulting challenges for practitioners when dealing with the topic in the future.
