Several scholars have researched push- and pull factors that may lead to radicalization. However, most of these studies focused on radicalization towards a single extreme ideology; it has hardly been investigated if radicalization factors toward different ideologies are comparable. This article focuses on the question whether push- and pull factors are similar for radicalization toward different extreme ideologies. This was done by means of 87 interviews with young people who have extreme leftwing, extreme rightwing and extreme Islamic ideals and their family members. The research shows that there are push- and pull factors that are specific for certain ideologies, but that parallels between radicalization processes exist as well.
