Quel rôle pour la psychiatrie dans la compréhension et dans la lutte du phénomène de radicalisation islamiste ?

Abstract : Aim: France is a country deeply affected by Islamist radicalization and terrorism. The government, the media and justice actors frequently ask mental health actors to take charg of the radicalized population. This thesis aims to establish the link between psychiatry and radicalization in order to define our role in the fight against this phenomenon. Method: systematic review of the literature. Results: of the 60 articles selected, 36 (or 60%) oppose a link between psychiatry and radicalization, 24 (or 40%) evoke it but either qualify as weak or possible because the current methodology is little reliable, either use it for a specific sub-population such as solitary authors. Twenty-nine of the 60 articles (48.3%) discuss the presence of personality disorders. Eighteen articles (30%) emit the possibility of underlying personality traits, but new emerging typologies linked to radicalized profiles seem more suited to the analysis of personalities. Eleven articles (18.3%) refute them completely. Conclusion: the relationship between psychiatric disorders and radicalization is not demonstrated. The population of solitary terrorists is the one with the most psychiatric disorders. Psychiatrists who develop an interest in this subject seem destined to play a consulting role in understanding this phenomenon, which is above all of a societal nature.
