Between 2018 and 2021, BICC conducted research on local challenges and needs of radicalisation prevention in North Rhine-Westphalia with funding from the Ministry of Culture and Science NRW. This included numerous workshops and interviews with professionals in prevention work, including social work professionals, teachers, municipal and city employees and police officers. Interim results have already been published in several BICC Working Papers and BICC Policy Briefs (in German language):

On the one hand, the conference will look at primary and secondary prevention activities that can be found in local communities as well as in prisons in NRW. On the other hand, it will address exit support and deradicalisation. A particular challenge here is dealing with returnees from the so-called Islamic State.
