Why are young people joining ISIS?

Less than four weeks before the horrific murders in Paris, WORLDbytes volunteers filmed this important debate at the annual Battle of Ideas festival at the Barbican. Why have hundreds of UK citizens abandoned their relatively prosperous lives in a free society to join a vicious band of nihilists? While politician’s seem to have little clue, the exceptional speakers on this panel share rare insights from the ‘frontline’ in UK schools to interviews with Jihadists to warnings of what is to come, as it has in Paris. We hope this video may provide useful material for debate and discussion in schools, university, government departments and beyond. Feel free to copy share and utilise. With special thanks to the Battle of Ideas.
