Theorizing Militant Disengagement



The main goal of this chapter is to present the existing theoretical framework on individual disengagement. It is demonstrated in this chapter that the current research is heavily focused on rather vague and amorphous ‘pull’ and ‘push’ factors. Having reviewed a diverse body of literature in political violence studies, this chapter offers a detailed and contextualized analysis of different types of disengagement across a range of militant organizations from different parts of the world.
