Protest, provocation or propaganda? Guide to preventing Salafist ideologization in schools and youth centers

This guide summarizes our longstanding experiences in the field of prevention and civic education. It draws on various off- and online projects with youngsters of different religious and ethnic background and builds on several years of trainings and consultancy with teachers, social workers, municipalities and police officers. The guide informs about the growing popularity of Salafist ideology among youngsters and highlights the various motivations that can lead youngsters to join religiously extreme groupings and organisations. Focusing on schools and youth work, the guide provides concrete examples to prevent radicalisation processes and to intervene in religiously motivated conflicts.
