May 19, 2018: Le terrorisme et l’extrémisme violent au Canada

Vivek Venkatesh, Associate Professor of Education and UNESCO Co-Chair in Prevention of Radicalisation and Violent Extremism authored an op-ed appearing in the Le Devoir looking at the rise of terrorism and violent extremism in Canada.

The piece takes a close look at recent data noting that the threat of terrorism and extremism has risen in Canada since 2012. Taken at face value, Professor Venkatesh notes that many might believe this is due to a rise in islamic terrorism, a subject often covered by international media. However, further analysis disproves this assumption, showing that much of the increase can be attributed instead to right-wing extremism.
