The project aims to contribute to a change of paradigm – from repression to prevention of radicalisation of youth. We will conduct a research using both quantitative and qualitative methods exploring potential for growing support of extremist ideologies and state of the art with respect to prevention targeting the youth. In the next phase in order to foster participation of young people we will create a working group composed of representatives of relevant institutions and young people. Based on the research findings the working group will design a mechanism of prevention of radicalisation of youth. Its draft will be consulted with young people across the country in consultation workshops. Together with the working group members we will advocate on various levels of public administration for the mechanism to be implemented.
The project will directly involve young people as consultants. The project will also benefit from the expertise of the leading expert on radicalisation and prevention from Norway.
