Critical thinking: which is the connection with youth work preventing violent radicalisation

During the first day of the training course “Youth work against violent radicalisation: competencies developement”, we had the opportunity to meet and listen the input from Tatiana Petrovich Njegosh. The input was presenting an interesting reflection about the ambiguity of definitions about violent radicalisations provided also by many institutions. Definitions are already provide a vision of world, an understanding of the context.

Violent Radicalisation is not only a phenomena linked what is common understood to Islamic religion or to any other kind of belif, but it is linked to the understanding of local communities, society about the complexity that we are living. Violent Radicalisation is linked with “fears”, with the contraposition among US and THEM. In each moment we can become US or THEM following different historical moments, social conditions or the “lents” that each of us is wearing to loot at reality.

The opinion is based on informations, not always we have the right information, or not always we have the tools for understand what is behond the surface.

Youth work should foster critical thinking and going behod the surface for create a community that is more resilience for the youth to grown in.
Prof. Tatiana Petrovich Njegosh was stressing the importance to have a critical regard on the reality, on social facts and to investigate and strengh our competencies as youth workers in this sense.
