In this National Security Podcast, Anooshe Mushtaq talks to Chris Farnham about how social exclusion led her down the path of radicalisation, and what policymakers can do to help others avoid the same fate.
Out of all the Muslims in Australia, only a very small number become radicalised. What sets those individuals apart from the rest of Australia’s Islamic community, and puts them on a path toward extremism and potential violence? In this fortnight’s National Security Podcast, Chris Farnham talks to the founder and Director of Raqib Taskforce about her experiences and path towards radicalisation.
Anooshe Mushtaq is a consultant, a social commentator, and the founder and chairperson of Raqib Taskforce – a Muslim-led organisation that builds social inclusion through engagement across the Australian community, dispelling extremist messages in the public domain.
Chris Farnham is the presenter of the National Security Podcast. He joined the National Security College in June 2015 as Policy and Events Officer. His career focus has been on geopolitics with experience working in and out of China for a number of years as well as operating in Australia and Southeast Asia.
