Project description

Research to prevent youth radicalisation

To tackle youth radicalisation in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) as well as the Balkan region it is important to detect the drivers of violent extremism in these regions in order to improve prevention strategies. For that reason, the EU-funded CONNEKT project carried out by an interdisciplinary team comprising 14 partners from 12 countries, is targeting eight countries: Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Egypt, Jordan, Kosovo, Morocco, North Macedonia and Tunisia. The aim of the project is to identify the factors of radicalisation among young people (12-30 years) and evaluate them on three levels: transnational/state, community and individual. The idea is to determine their interrelationships and specific significance in the process that can lead to radicalisation. Based on the empirical research findings, the project will end up recommending tools and measures for the prevention of violent extremism from a social and community perspective both for the regions of study and the EU.
