The Challenge of Extremism. Deradicalisation and prevention as answers to social polarisation?

May 7, 2021, 6:30 p.m.

The "challenge of extremism" appears in the daily news in multiple forms. From brutal attacks by islamist 'Home Grown Terrorists' to growing and violent right-wing extremist networks and heterogeneous left-wing extremist structures rejecting the state system: extremism poses a significant threat to the security of liberal democracies and therefore especially to Germany, its neighbours and closest partners.

Cross-border radicalisation, extremism and terrorism are closely linked to the increasing polarisation of our societies, so this problem can only be addressed and overcome successfully with a collective approach. Thus, prevention and deradicalisation embody tasks for the society as a whole, especially in relation to polarisation. Due to the complexity of the phenomenon of extremism, there is no ‘one size fits all’ approach to countering this threat in advance. Rather, current preventive strategies must always be questioned on the basis of past experiences and be adapted to current social conditions. Consequently, the question of how we can meet the complex extremist challenge today arises. Which measures and programmes, for example regarding prevention and deradicalisation in relation to Islamist extremism, have proven to be effective in the past and how can they be adapted for today's social situation? Which different strategies are France, Belgium and Germany pursuing individually and together?

The Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom, the Institut français Bonn and the Center for Advanced Security, Strategic and Integration Studies (CASSIS), in cooperation with the French Embassy in Belgium, offer an opportunity to examine and discuss these questions with high-ranking experts from different perspectives.
