Department of Right-wing Extremism

The core of our work is to accompany clients who are in danger of becoming radicalised in the field of right-wing extremism or who have already done so. We address people in the field in various projects – from those at risk to those who are a risk for others – and work in the entire range from prevention to intervention. Our main field of work is with right-wing extremist offenders at risk or radicalised offenders in prison. Here we can draw on over 20 years of expertise in distancing work.

The second pillar of our work is the development and implementation of creative further training and workshops (face-to-face and online) for various target groups: civil society organisations, educational institutions, employees of the judiciary and the probation service. In addition to in-depth information on the respective thematic block, our offers are also primarily about reflecting on one’s own professional role and the resulting professional strategies for action.

Both fields of work require the observation and classification of current developments in a phenomenon area that is becoming increasingly differentiated – e.g. in conspiracy ideologies, Reich citizens, toxic masculinity, anti-Semitism, and more. Here, we observe current developments, evaluate them and incorporate our findings both in our work with clients and in our training courses and workshops.

We work closely with the Digital Department as well as the Science Department and always look for points of contact in the bridging narratives to the specialist area of religiously based extremism.
