AIVD publishes report: Salafism growth stagnates

The growth of the Salafist movement in our country is stagnating due to a heightened resilience. Thus, a part of the breeding ground for radicalisation is disappearing. The AIVD report Resilience and Resistance reveals this.

This report is a follow-up to the publication Radicale dawa in The Radical Dawa in Transition, which was published in the autumn of 2007. Because Salafism is a movement that can have a polarising influence on society it remains important to monitor developments carefully. When making a careful and balanced assessment of the threat it is important not to either underestimate or overestimate the problems and issues at hand.
