The goals of the Advice Centre Bavaria are the prevention of radicalisation and the de-radicalisation of youths. The objective consists in directly addressing young vulnerable people who are part of the extreme Salafist scene and initiating disengagement processes.
The Advice Centre Bavaria establishes a working relationship to young people through low-threshold interventions. Pedagogical work and questioning elements of their radical ideology initiate disengagement processes from extremist groups. This enables a process of de-radicalisation. The Advice Centre Bavaria offers counselling of relatives and measures of intervention, de-radicalisation and disengagement assistance.
- Counselling for relatives in the context of religious-based extremism, strengthening their educational presence and their ability to communicate and address conflict
- Counselling, accompaniment and specific training for young vulnerable people who are radicalised and capable of committing crimes
- Interventional measures in cases of radicalisation
- Disengagement assistance: measures of counselling and dialog with radicalised people, wannabe jihadis and returnees (e.g. from Syria)
