  • World Bank: Poverty Does Not Drive ISIS Radicalization
    According to a new World Bank study, “poverty is not a driver of radicalization into violent extremism.” Moreover, the study, titled “Economic and Social Inclusion to Prevent Violent Extremism,” found that recruits to Islamic State are better educated than their average countrymen. Out of 331 recruits described in a leaked Islamic State database, only 17% did not finish high school, while a quarter had university-level educations. (AFP)
