Youth Work Against Violent Radicalisation - Call for Examples and Inspiring Practices by SALTO

Violent radicalisation among young people has become a growing issue of concern in Europe and its neighbouring regions. There has been a notable increase in hate speech, incidence of hate crimes and attacks on migrants and refugees, propaganda and violent xenophobia, as well as rise in religious and political extremism and terrorist attacks in Europe. All of these emerging concerns have highlighted the urgent need to work with young people, in order to identify and address root causes of extremism, and prevent their violent radicalisation.

There are various ways in which youth workers, NGOs, institutions, religious leaders and other civil society actors are addressing the issue of youth violent radicalisation, and are working on increasing young people’s resilience. Youth work is particularly important in this regard as one of the instruments against violent radicalisation, due to direct access youth workers have to young people, and their ability to support their development, promote democratic principles, active citizenship, and inclusion, and help youth become active participants in society.

Selected cases and examples of practice will be invited to present their work at a Youth Work Against Violent Radicalisation conference in Malta, from 27 November – 1 December 2017.
