In her PhD research, Léa explores the evolution of beliefs and behaviours during involvement in Islamic-inspired extremism. Drawing on qualitative data and existentialist insights, she questions the attractiveness of violence and the meaning it holds for individuals involved in extremist group. Her study is both qualitative and theoretical, and aims to provide insights into the dynamics of involvement, commitment and disengagement from extremism.
