The centre provides prevention, training and deradicalisation measures as a response to general helplessness when dealing with religiously motivated extremism. The Advice Centre promotes increased tolerance of different world views, and early detection, prevention and reversal of radicalisation processes. Intervention in early radicalisation processes and targeted deradicalisation activities are aimed at people who are searching for an escape from extremist ideologies. Our services are based on two pillars:

Prevention – intercultural competence and extremism prevention

The prevention work of the Advice Centre Hesse is a response to the growing need to use preventative political education in order to address the phenomenon of religiously motivated extremism. The goal is to provide education about extremism and recruitment strategies as well as to develop strategies for young people when signs of radicalisation arise in peer groups. Other objectives are to demystify the phenomenon of jihadism and to increase the ability of young people to distance themselves from extremism.

Deradicalisation – routes out of extremism

The targeted expansion of competences, activation and professionalisation of institutions and multipliers, and the prevention and reversal of radicalisation processes are primary objectives of the Advice Centre Hesse. It 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.

The Advice Centre Hesse is there for you if …

  •  … your institution is experiencing religious-related tension.
  • … a religious conflict is intensifying in your environment.
  • … you require support in dealing with extremist world views.
  • … you think that your child, student or friend has become radical.
  • … your institution requires advice and advanced training in dealing with religious extremism.
  • … you would like to disengage from extremist ideologies or opt out of radical groups.


Objectives of the Advice Centre Hesse

The aim of the Advice Centre Hesse is to establish contact with young people who are susceptible to extremism. Also, in the course of pedagogical work, the intention is to first effect the separation process from extremist groups and the questioning of violent and extremist ideological elements, which then allows for deradicalisation processes.
