YOUTH COUNSELLING AGAINST RADICALISATION GUIDELINES FOR FRONT-LINE WORKERS
Edited by: Freek de Meere, Lisa Lensink, Verwey Jonker Instituut, Utrecht, Netherlands
In recent years radicalisation toward violent extremist and terrorist positions has been considered an increasing treat in the European Union. The Erasmus + project Youth Counselling Against Radicalisation (YCARE) responds to this phenomenon, taking as staring point that international cooperation is necessary to effectively combat cross-
border radicalisation and terrorism. YCARE is carried out with expertise in different fields relevant to efforts to counter radicalisation. Professionals in education and researchers on radicalisation combine their strengths in developing products to equip youth workers in detecting and dealing with radicalisation. Various projects have been carried out in the field of radicalisation, resulting in an increasing knowledge base. One of the aims of YCARE is to share existing knowledge about radicalisation that might be relevant for youth
counsellors around Europe. We focus on youth counsellors of all sorts, ranging from educators to social services staff. Our products might be relevant for all professionals working with young people who are vulnerable to radicalisation, or who have already been radicalised.
