Bien que les violences politiques soient, depuis le début du siècle, principalement abordées sous l’angle de l’extrémisme islamiste, les crimes motivés par la haine existaient au Canada bien avant les attentats du 11 septembre 2001. Notamment, plusieurs groupes d’extrême droite y ont toujours défendu leurs idéologies racistes et fascistes en utilis...

Jihad, jihadisme, jihadiste, islamisme, salafisme, voilà bien des termes dont il est souvent question dans l’actualité, mais pour lesquels il peut être difficile de savoir de quoi il en retourne.

Article
Some moderation strategies of online content have targeted the individuals believed to be the most influential in the diffusion of such material, while others have focused on censorship of the content itself. Few approaches consider these two aspects simultaneously. The present study addresses this gap by showing how a socio-semantic network analys...
Article
Forensic science is constantly evolving and transforming, reflecting the numerous technological innovations of recent decades. There are, however, continuing issues with the use of digital data, such as the difficulty of handling large-scale collections of text data. As one way of dealing with this problem, we used machine-learning techniques, part...

In recent years, research on pathways in and out of violent extremism has grown at a staggering rate. Yet much of what is known about these oftentimes "mysterious" processes does not necessarily shed light on the specific aspects of right-wing extremism, and especially not from a Canadian perspective. In an effort to bridge this gap, we use a life-...

While it has become increasingly common for researchers, practitioners and policymakers to draw from the insights of former extremists to combat violent extremism, overlooked in this evolving space has been an in-depth look at how formers perceive such efforts. To address this gap, interviews were conducted with 10 Canadian former right-wing extrem...
Article
Introducing the concept of ‘armed violence capital’, this paper intends to explore radicalisation leading to violence through the acquisition of knowledge and skills of violence without active ideological indoctrination. Using civilian communities practicing specific military simulations as a case study, it assesses how this type of training might...
Article
Drawing on Tilly’s notion of “repertoire of action,” this article shows how the evolution of the global jihadist movement’s communicative action repertoire has increased the potential resonance of its discourse. It foresees the construction of the global jihadist movement’s discourse of mobilization as the result of the evolution of its network of...

Quatre grandes familles d’études ont traversé les 50 dernières années de cette revue alors que se chevauchent des études sur les fond...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Information on how the Global Jihadist Movement’s (GJM) leaders define their ideology is widely available, but few studies have focused on analyzing the entire contribution of all the actors involved in the construction of this decentralized movement’s discourse (Winter 2015), and few studies provide an in-depth qualitative analysis of it (Macnair...

Article
Considérée comme la forme de criminalité du XXIe siècle, la cybercriminalité est un phénomène complexe. L’écosystème de la cybersécurité doit répondre à un large éventail de menaces numériques dont les causes et les impacts sont rarement très bien compris. Les données et les statistiques sur la problématique sont innombrables, accentuant ainsi la c...
Article
The lack of right-wing political parties at the national scale is, among other things, a reason why only a few studies have looked at the factors shaping farright violent incidents in Canada. In other geopolitical contexts, however, many researchers have identified economic conditions, social developments, and political trends as sources of explana...

Statistics and digital threats How security organizations quantify cyber-criminality Cyber-criminality, seen as the major form of criminality of the 21st century, is a complex phenomenon.
