Stop Youth Radicalization (StopR)
Period: September 2017 - December 2018
Contacts: Daniela Ilieva
The project “Stop Youth Radicalization” (StopR) will support youth organisations in 5 countries (Hungary, Slovenia, Bulgaria, Poland and Czech Republic) and across Europe in recovering and fostering the intercultural dialogue across diverse youth communities. The project aims to enhance the abilities of youth workers to stop and prevent radicalization among young people in the EU in a timely and effective fashion.
StopR will develop a quality mark, which will help recognize the best methodologies in this area of youth work. As the problem of radicalization has spread through the European Union, many methodologies have been created and employed to prevent and stop these efforts among youth. It is important for them to find recognition and an audience resulting in increased efficiency (as youth workers start using the established good practices instead of developing their own) and transparency. The quality mark will be awarded to the methodologies, which answer a set of criteria, to be developed by the project partners.
The project is implemented under the framework of the European Commissions’ Programme Erasmus+, within Key Action 2: Cooperation for innovation and the exchange of good practices, Action: Strategic partnership for youth.
As a partner, Law and Internet Foundation will create the StopR platform and assist the other partners with all relevant research.
