Extremism and radicalization

A new approach in research and preventive design

Nowadays, extremism, radicalization, and polarization are frequent topics of discussion and study as newer patterns become increasingly evident. Quite different forms of far-right extremism are having an impact on the European region and its borders. Far-right violence that emerged in violent football ‘ultra’ groups that in some cases mutated into militias, far-right cultures – across gamer platforms, and jihadist violence that remains a threat – these are only a few examples.

The PARTICIPATION project starts with the assumption that broken a top-down approach in research and preventive design is needed.

It aims to capture and explore contemporary experiences of extremism and radicalization and proposes concrete actions, policies, and digital tools that will empower policy actors and practitioners to respond to a changing reality.

The project’s main topics are also violence, conflict and conflict resolution, transformation of societies, democratization, and social movements.
