The attractiveness of Islamist organizations and milieus has been growing for years. According to the report by the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution, the level of danger from Islamist terrorism in Berlin remains high. With the large group of sympathizers of (violent) Islamist groups, there is still a need for educational work with young people who show extremist tendencies and/or commit violent crimes that are religiously motivated.
The Advice Centre Berlin provides prevention, training and deradicalisation measures as a response to general helplessness when dealing with religiously motivated extremism. The mobile advise and intervention team aims to build a working relationship with the target group of radicalised people and those at risk of radicalisation through outreach approaches and to bring about the process of detaching from violent groups as well as the questioning of violent ideology elements, so as to make the deradicalisation process possible.
