"What we analyse is the transformations of Salafism during the last 20 years. The way it became more diverse, more moderate, more open to other forms of religion and less violent.." 

In this Schuman Shelf, Olivier Roy explores the relationship between Salafism and Jihadism identifying the true complexity of this relation. Instead of focusing solely on theory, it is important to look at the real religious practices of individuals in order to fill in the gaps and generate a clear perception of Islam.
