Abstract

In recent decades, many countries around the world have faced an increase in ‘home-grown’ terrorism. While home-grown terrorist acts can be perpetrated by anyone, in countries like the United States, Canada, Australia and throughout Europe the term ‘home-grown terrorism’ has typically come to denote acts of violence perpetrated by Muslim immigrants acting in the name of Islam (Vermeulen 2014). Despite such acts being perpetrated by only a small minority of the Muslim community, Vermeulen notes that authorities can often perceive the threat of violent extremism as coming from the entire Muslim community. Vermeulen (2014) argues that this can lead to the construction of Muslims as a ‘suspect community’.
