Education Working Group (RAN EDU)


Education plays an important role in shaping the identity of children and youngsters, and transmitting democratic and social values. Consequently, teachers are at the frontline when it comes to potentially identifying early signs of radicalisation. They are well-positioned for prevention work, both for identifying and safeguarding vulnerable young people at risk of radicalisation, and for teaching critical thinking skills from the first stages of education.

The working group on Education will focus on the need to better equip teachers so they can play a crucial role in preventing radicalisation. The aim is to raise awareness of the topic, but also to empower and strengthen capacity to deal with radicalisation in educational settings.
