The Preventive Role of Open Youth Work in Radicalisation and Extremism

The Preventive Role of Open Youth Work in Radicalisation and Extremism

“Open Youth Work in Austria means both working in youth centres, youth clubs, drop-in centres and working in public areas in the form of outreach work or detached youth work. It is financially supported mainly by the municipalities, sometimes by provincial governments and carried out by Non Profit Organisations. As Austria does not have a specific education for Youth Work professionals come from different kind of educational background (social worker, social pedagogy, arts etc.)
This article will not provide another theory of the phenomena of (youth) extremism. It will rather highlight the role of open youthwork in the prevention of radicalism and extremism and why the general principles of this approach are one of the keys to young people at risk.”

During the Seminar that will be held in Tirana from 19 to 23 November 2018, Werner Prinzjakowitsch introduces his experience and approaches about the phonomena of (youth) extremism and the role of youth work.
