Derby professor: 'Young Muslims need forums to express idealism'
by Chris Mallett
A Derby radicalisation expert has voiced reservations over the idea young Muslims can be turned away from extremism through "computer games-type sites".
The University of Derby's Professor of Inter-Religious Relations, Paul Weller, said the key was understanding that those at risk of radicalisation were often motivated by "misplaced idealism".
He said they needed instead to be encouraged to assist countries in the Muslim world more healthily through working with aid and development agencies.
