This book project seeks to examine how selected individuals in four Southeast Asian countries: Malaysia, Singapore, the Philippines, and Indonesia, became radicalised into Islamist extremism. The study will first unpack the various characteristics of religious extremism, showing how it is an acute form of fundamentalism, before analysing the specific phenomenon of Islamist extremism and how it plays out in the four countries mentioned. Recommendations for coping with Islamist extremist ideology across the four countries will be the subject of the final chapter.
