Youth work has a very important role to play in the prevention of violent radicalisation, supporting and empowering young people to deal with challenges they face and strengthening their resilience.
Youth work is particularly important as one of the instruments against violent radicalisation, as young people are susceptible to various influences during the critical stage of adolescence, and if they perceive themselves as susceptible to discrimination, social exclusion or marginalisation, they are more at risk.
The Conference would like to raise awareness about the role of youth work against violent radicalization. The event is part of long term strategy that is realising for 2017 a mapping exercise of inspiring practises of NGOs working on the topic.
