Within the scope of the ON/OFF PREVENT project, an interdisciplinary team of experts observes and evaluates trends of online radicalisation in the field of religiously motivated extremism in order to derive innovative options for online prevention and intervention based on the findings. These approaches are digitally processed in the form of content (eg. texts, images, videos) and applications and then distributed on channels relevant to the target group.
The main objective of the project is to develop and test innovative approaches to the prevention of radicalisation in the online and offline sector. It involves the identification of content relevant to the target group, which is made available via digital applications and then distributed on a target-group-specific basis. Another goal is to counteract online radicalisation tendencies among young people through the digital measures developed in the project ON/OFF PREVENT. In the case of radicalisation, it is possible to develop the online contact into face-to-face communication in order to initiate effective intervention and counseling processes.
