Advice Centre Hesse

Since its opening the main focus of the Advice Centre Hesse is to intervene in the radicalization processes. Targeted de-radicalisation activities are aimed at people who tend to travel to war zones, return to Germany as “foreign fighters” and/or are searching for an escape from extremist ideologies. Beside this actual focus the Advice Centre Hesse is geared towards adolescents, parents and experts who have questions in the area of extremism. The centre provides prevention, intervention and de-radicalisation measures as a response to general helplessness when dealing with religious extremism. The Advice Centre promotes increased (religious) tolerance of different world views, and early detection, prevention and reversal of radicalization processes.

One of the key aspects of the Hessian approach is to provide adolescents with information and knowledge enhancement on interfaith and intercultural connections at an early stage and on dealing with interfaith conflicts. Interfaith communication allows for a basic understanding that does not reject fundamental principles such as democracy, non-violence, human rights and tolerance. Rather, it includes these values in their own religion as well. At the same time, this understanding also prevents extremism and the trend to radicalism. In order to reach a broad spectrum within the target group, prevention as well as intervention measures are used, and in particularly entrenched cases, de-radicalisation measures and disengagement assistance are provided.
