The Faculty of Law and Criminology is pleased to announce that Phd student Léa Massé is going to give a lecture on The Seduction of Terrorism: Perspectives on the Existentialist Aspects of Islamic-Inspired Terrorism and violence.

Léa Massé, who studied Law and criminology at Orléans; Warsaw and Utrecht, is a PhD candidate at the department of Criminology of the Erasmus School of Law. 

In her current research project, she explores the lived experience and attraction of Islamic fundamentalist movements in Western countries and the broader, late-modern context in which such movements arise. Her approach draws on interpretive phenomenology, existentialist sociology and cultural criminological work on late-modernity. Combining life-course interviews, analysis of autobiographical documents and observations, she examines how Islamic fundamentalism has emerged over recent years as a counter-culture movement providing existential meaning and purpose to the individual

We invite you to participate in this lecture and hope seeing you there.

Participation is free, registration is not necessary.
