Project Description

OPEN MINDS – Innovative Methodology for preventing Radicalisation to promote Social Inclusion of Youth

In a context of increasingly polarised societies, with extremist ideologies spreading and presenting high threats to social cohesion in Europe, the EU and its Member States recognise the need to develop effective prevention policies and intervention scenarios supporting social inclusion and cohesive societies. It is essential to focus on psychological and social mechanisms of alienation, radicalisation and deradicalisation of young people in European urban contexts.

OPEN MINDS project aims to identify social-economic problems, design and pilot solutions as well as refine and validate these solutions in close collaboration to stakeholders and civil society.
