In order to examine how different actors have been dealing with potential violent radicalisation of young people, the SALTO EuroMed, SALTO EECA and SALTO SEE Resource Centres, the National Agencies of Erasmus +: Youth in Action of Germany, the United Kingdom, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway and Poland, and European Union and Council of Europe Youth Partnership have come together to research and showcase positive ways and initiatives in which youth violent radicalisation can be addressed and prevented, and examine how we can strengthen the role of different actors, in an attempt to compile a long-term strategy about youth work against violent radicalisation.
The 20 practices included in this research offer different perspectives on how diverse youth work approaches and methods can shape young peoples attitudes, perceptions and behaviours. These practices are grouped in five categories: peer education; online campaigns and digital media; co-operation with other stakeholders; providing opportunities and education and training. While all the practices presented here use more than one approach in the prevention of violent radicalisation, the grouping serves to showcase the interdisciplinary nature of the work, and a variety of approaches, activities and frameworks that youth workers use in their everyday activities.Author: Miguel Angel García López and Lana Pašić Publication date: 01 Apr 2018 Read the full report
