Communication and Narratives Working Group


Communication and narratives are key to preventing radicalisation. Terrorist groups are capitalising more and more on technology to extend the reach of their narratives and recruit young people. The Communication and Narratives Working Group focuses on the delivery of both on- and offline communication that offers alternatives or that counters extremist propaganda and/or challenges extremist ideas. The working group will gather insights on the content of these narratives, its target audiences, the credible messengers (varying from national governments, civil society, victims, formers and youngsters) and the varying ways of dissemination (from face-to-face interventions, using testimonials in different contexts, such as classrooms, to via the Internet in blogs, chatrooms, websites or social media).
