EU puts schools at center of counter-radicalisation

17 June 2016

EFD Senior Policy Advisor and member of the RAN’s counter-narrative working group Alexander Ritzmann is mentioned by EuranetPlus on radicalisation:
“So, someone who says ‘I went to Syria, it’s not like they say [it is]- they’re lying to you, they’re killing Muslims, it’s a corrupt organisation. It’s not a big adventure where you can be a hero defending your faith,'” Ritzmann suggests. He adds: “And this is what some of the defectors are saying. And this is then somewhat a credible messenger, but the government is not credible at all if you look at the target group of vulnerable youth.”
