Why this project?
According to the Radicalisation Awareness Network, “fighting terrorism and violent extremism involves more than surveillance and security….The most effective prevention strategies
stop people from getting involved in violent extremism or acts of terrorism in the first place”. We couldn’t agree more! This project aims at targeting the prevention of the radicalization process in youth (16-24), but goes as far as to help towards fighting the indoctrination process which starts at even younger ages. The RADEX project believes that empowering youth, up-skilling youth workers and other related professionals working with youth, but also stimulating their critical thinking, will provide them the capacity and power to identify and comprehend different types of online radicalisation processes.
Whom are we targeting?
The RADEX project targets primarily young people, youth workers, social workers, youth organisations and any other professional working with youth.
What will we produce?
Through the research that will be conducted in six different European countries, the collection of real data through interviews and in-depth analysis of targeted media, the RADEX project and partners will create a full suite of educational resources and information on youth radicalisation processes. An online training platform will be available containing all e-training modules, a video showcasing how, when and where different types of radicalization processes may take place, thus, empowering and fortifying their defenses. Our training can be accessed at any time from any place and because it is modular, can be integrated within existing training delivery by the different target groups.
