Online prevention of radicalisation

The website is component of ouronline campaign for the prevention of radicalisation and an information portal about the topic of Islam. Designed as an FAQ platform, the website engages with fundamental questions about the everyday lives of Muslim teenagers and adults. It further offers a glossary containing different interpretations of basic religious concepts and terms that are important in Islam. A comprehensive video archive complements the FAQ and glossary sections. The continuously expanding online portal also takes socio-political issues into account.

The objective of Islam-ist

The project aims to prevent the developing radicalisation of the target group in an online context or, if the process of radicalisation has already begun, establish face-to-face communication offline in order to facilitate the reintegration process.

Target groups of Islam-ist

The primary target groups are Muslim teenagers and young adults who are still in the initial stages of the radicalisation process and do not yet reject offers of communication with third parties. They often turn to the internet to find answers to their questions, which arise from the interaction of religion and society in their everyday lives.

The project is further aimed at Muslim teenagers and young adults who have already been radicalised but wish to quit the scene now and at those who sympathise with Islamist ideologies and/or scenes.

It also intends to support pedagogues and the concerned communities of radicalised persons or those at risk of radicalisation. Both groups have access to a wide range of information on the online portal, which also offers a way of contacting employees of Violence Prevention Network.
