The aim of this paper is to propose a methodology to understand the grievances that radical groups could invoke to win the sympathy of youth, differentiate radicalised from non-radicalised individuals using signatures of personality and identify indicators of transition from radicalisation into extremism. The grievances of youth, techniques for identifying radicalised youth and indicators of transition to extremism have not been studied before. This is also the first time that a methodology for tracing radicalisation along a continuum (from when youth express grievances, to when they become radicalised, to when they transition into extremism) has been proposed. The methodology makes a significant contribution to the available strategies for studying online radicalisation.
