RAN The role of youth work in prevention of radicalisation and extremism

We are participating with director Marc Boes and board member John Grace at the conference on “The role of youth work in prevention of radicalisation and extremism” of the Working Group on Youth, Families and Communities of the RAN Network in Vienna.

We are discussing existing efforts, the role of detached/open youth work, taboos and controversial topics and learning about upcoming papers and tools.

For our Members this is an important topic in their daily work with young people and thus we were happy to get involved in the preparation and programme of this conference. We are currently working also on the discussed topics in our current Strategic Partnership “Providing Perspectives – Preventing Violence”.
