Community Dialogue with Youth: early signs of radicalisation among youth in local communities

Regional Cooperation Council (RCC) is organising a one-day workshop to discuss early signs of radicalisation among youth in local communities with students from across Bosnia and Herzegovina. The event is to take place at Faculty for Criminalistics, Criminology and Security Studies of University of Sarajevo.

Around 50 students from various Universities in Bosnia and Hercegovina will discuss the role of academic community in countering radicalisation narratives, psychology of religiosity and counter-narratives to radicalisation, the role of social media and online cyber tools in spreading extremist narratives in local communities, and the role of relevant institutions in preventing and countering these narratives.

The Workshop is a part of Democratic Control of Armed Forces (DCAF) Programme: Integrative Internal Security Governance (IISG)/ The Western Balkan Counter-Terrorism initiative (WBCTi) supported through Instrument for Pre-Accession Assistance (IPA) II 2016, covering Regional Action on Prevention/Countering Violent extremism (P/CVE) in the Western Balkans.
