RAN YF&C Academy ‘Children growing up in extremist families’, 24-25 April 2019

This RAN Youth, Families and Communities (YF&C) Academy meeting aimed to transfer and disseminate lessons learned from earlier RAN meetings as well as examples of working practice on this topic among a broader group of (new) practitioners in the field. This paper summarises and aims to disseminate the lessons learned, and adds to the earlier literature on this topic by introducing new features and aspects.

This paper can be useful for newcomers to the fields of youth work, health- and social-care, education, and local municipalities that are responsible for long-term preventing and countering violent extremism (P/CVE) interventions, which are required for these vulnerable children, as well as for experienced practitioners in the field of EXIT, and experts from adjacent fields such as the field of cults, who also attended this meeting.
