We could not separate our activiy of the promotion of the knowledge and skills for development to the prevention of violent extremist and radicalisation. We think that these topics are interconnected. Therefore, in addition to our core activity which consists to train disadvantaged individuals in peripheral regions in developing regions in ICT (Information and communication technologies) and business skills, we are developping a growing knowledge base that stimulates awareness of terrorism, violent extremism, illegal migration and cybercrime; it explores the risks involved in these crimes and provides practical measures for at-risk individuals to navigate contributing social traps; and, in a constantly changing environment, it creates an efficient feedback loop for continuous gathering of newinformation that contributes to an constant bettering of understanding in terms of changing behaviors and tactics.
Below you can find some of our training materials (in the process of production) as well as some useful education materials from other sources on prevention of extrimist and radicalisation.
