2019/Belgian Group about Radicability

Interview of Amalia Alibaev from the Belgian Group after the Training Course in Germany "Radicability" 2019


According to your opinion, what drives youth radicalization? 

Radicalisation, over the past years, has been highlighted as a topic of debate in

which it can be shaped in various forms such as political, social, cultural and

religious. Young people in a vulnerable state have been prone to be radicalised

specifically. This resulting from self-consciousness, ignorance, unawareness and

lately fake news. In my opinion young adults are mainly targeted as they desire

belonging to a bigger group that can help them secure their confidence and position

in life. Youth radicalisation needs to be prevented early on, starting with basic

education in school.

What is the role of youth organizations/NGOs in the prevention of radicalisation and violent extremism?

Youth organisations need to spread knowledge and inclusion. Their task is to create events where young vulnerable people can go to and find a welcoming community. If a young adult finds himself in a healthy and educated environment, where care is actually given, radicalisation can be decreased slowly.

What can we do to protect young people from extremist influences in the online environment? What are your tips for staying safe online?

In my opinion this opens up a debate about the freedom of speech and safety. If

violent posts and fake news are freely accessible for everyone on social media

platforms, young adults are going to be affected. There have been new regulations

that restrict inappropriate content, however, this should be restricted even more.

Especially in our society where, the digital world is becoming more and more

important, there needs to be more online security.
