Preventing Radical Islam


Parents in France who want to prevent their kids from joining militant groups like ISIS now have some support. A French Muslim anthropologist, Dounia Bouzar, has written a book to help parents identify and defend against recruiters who "set out to break every emotional, social and historical tie in the kids' lives." She travels the country training psychologists, police and experts to deal with homegrown radicalization. One of the keys is reestablishing connections for the radicalized youth with their former lives. Listen to hear more about this woman’s method of diffusing the pull of radical Islam.
