Project description

Rotterdam's Anti-Radicalisation Approach programme was initiated in 2015. Most of its preventive activities underwent a pilot phase, completed in 2015. Following this, the team tried to determine which projects contributed successfully to the prevention of radicalisation and should therefore be continued. In light of the sheer complexity of the problem, it was impossible to select a single approach or activity for further development and investment.

However, we are convinced that the activities succeeded thanks to certain principles or elements, and that activities based on such principles or elements are more likely to contribute to the prevention of radicalisation.

In practice, it is important to identify and specify these successful principles and elements. The Rotterdam Anti-Radicalisation Approach team has therefore organised a seminar with both scientists and civil servants, with the goal of collectively determining these criteria.

Scientific and practical experience are combined in an attempt to construct a unified framework of successful principles and effective elements for application in anti-radicalisation activities. The ultimate aim is preventing and/or limiting radicalisation in Rotterdam.

Deliverables

The practice has resulted in the development of a unified framework of successful principles for preventative anti-radicalisation intervention.
