RAN EDU meeting: religion-inspired extremist ideologies in school

13 December 2019

Teachers, educators, social workers, and other front-line professionals working with pupils at school are increasingly confronted with challenges linked to religion-inspired extremist ideologies that polarise European societies and are echoed in classrooms.

On 14-15 November, teachers, principals, social workers, researchers, and practitioners from the education sector that cope with these challenges gathered in Antwerp (BE) for a RAN EDU Meeting. The RAN Ex Post paper, authored by Dr Francesco Farinelli, contains the main findings of the meeting on how to pedagogically deal with claims, grievances, real or perceived injustices, controversial questions, and sensitive issues related to the religious sphere of children.
