What is the motivation for young men to offer their life for the jihad? We will speak about the reasons underlying this radical decision. We will do so with radicalization expert Pieter Stockmans, who did extensive research on radicalization of warring parties in the Middle East. In his book, De Jihadkaravaan, he tries to understand Muslim extremism. And with Saliha Ben Ali, the mother of a Belgian jihadi who lost her son in 2015 during his fight in Syria.
