Radicalisation, like terrorist action, is subject to constraints. Individuals are not equally susceptible to propensity change and human environments do not produce or sustain equally the conditions that support the radicalisation process. To explain radicalisation, we need to understand the mechanisms which govern the interaction of factors of individual vulnerability, exposure and emergence (IVEE) at several levels of analysis. Such a systemist understanding of radicalisation, as opposed to a more traditional risk-factor based outlook, may help explain why some populations in some environments are more vulnerable or resilient to radicalisation at any given time. Findings from a number of research projects driven by the IVEE model are used to illustrate this particular analytical approach. Implications for intervention are discussed.
