Ahmad Mansour is cited in an article from German news outlet Deutsche Welle, following heightened security concerns in connection with extremists returning from the civil war in Syria.

Ahmad states that the most effective time to counter radicalisation is during the school years: "Patriarchal structures are prevalent among many families with Arabic or Turkish roots. In this environment, critical questions are not encouraged [...] But when you invest some time, and listen to the young people, and carry out projects with them, [...] then you start to see the change."
