The Relational Dynamics of Radicalization
The chapter brings together the four main agendas of the book: conceptualizing radicalization as a process involving a shift from predominantly nonviolent forms of contention on the part of a movement organization to predominantly violent ones; theorizing radicalization as a process driven most centrally by relational dynamics; researching radicalization through a mechanism-based strategy of process tracing; and, comparing radicalization in a way that maintain a balance between similarities and dissimilarities across episodes of contention. In discussing each agenda, the chapter elaborates on scholarly influences on our work, how the book expands on these influences, and the analytical and theoretical contributions offered in the book.
