Understanding Radicalisation: Expert Interview with Dr Mark Sedgwick | On Religion – The UK's first magazine about faith, religion and society

Understanding Radicalisation: Expert Interview with Dr Mark Sedgwick | On Religion – The UK's first magazine about faith, religion and society | Law and Religion | Scoop.it
On Religion was born out of a desire to provide commentary on religion that was nuanced, indepth and informed. The media in general tends towards sensationalism and simplicity, and this is even more pronounced when coverage is of religion and faith. Our writers consist of academics, faith leaders and opinion makers and our audience is all those with an interest � professional or lay � in religion, theology and its impact in society. We hope you find the magazine challenging and engaging.
