The Rap: Jamil Jivani Explains Why Young Men Get Swept up in Violent Movements

Canadian lawyer and community organiser Jamil Jivani visits Areej to discuss his new book, Why Young Men: Rage, Race and the Crisis of Identity. Why is it, he wonders, that it’s almost always young men who tend to get involved in violent movements? Covering the three major types of violent movements that feed on young, directionless males – jihad, white supremacy and gangbanging – Jivani’s search for answers questions the context of the circumstances that can combine to light the fuse of young men who ultimately are looking for belonging, relevance and purpose.
