Why Are Young Men Attracted to Violent Extremist Movements?

Jamil Jivani, who grew up in an immigrant Canadian neighborhood and narrowly escaped a road to a life of crime and gang violence. He describes to our partners at Amanpour & Company how the economy is changing where the jobs that men used to count on — especially working class men — are starting to gradually disappear due to automation. And as women outperform men academically and professionally, how does this affect the way men view their role in society? In his book, “Why Young Men: Rage, Race and the Crisis of Identity,” Jivani explores what it means to be a man in the 21st Century.
