Abstract

This paper identifies parameters of nonviolent mobilization. By doing so, it aims at offering a workable strategy for governments to tackle the problem of terrorism across the world. Relying on participant observation and empirical material collected in a variety of Anatolian settings, it suggests the existence of various overlapping clusters to understanding the constraints that have containted extremist religious Islamic fundamentalist violence to emerge, ranging from normative accepted rules to the implicit deterrence produced by the leading AKP Party to the accomodating democratic structure of the secular state. Finally, by analysing the Turkish case, this paper aims to offer lessons to understanding the social dynamics and the rise of extra-parliamentary fundamentalist groups violence and how to respond to their threat.
