On November 26th 2015, the Arq Psychotrauma Expert Group organised a conference in the Netherlands with the title ‘Prevention, De-radicalisation and Citizenship’. This conference was based on input from the TERRA project, especially in using the recommendations from the TERRA Toolkit.
The conference was attended by representatives from target groups identified by TERRA as being those who work with youth potentially at risk of radicalising, like teachers, youth workers, law enforcement personnel and policy makers from both local and national level. A new target group, mental health professionals, has also recently been identified and added. This group was well represented at the conference. Also representatives from all partner organisations in the TERRA project, Impact, Association of Aid to Victims of 11th of March, the Quilliam Foundation and University College Roosevelt were present, as well as the TERRA Advisory Board members: Dr. Lorenzo Vidino, Rt Hon Hazel Blears, Mr. Maajid Nawaz and Professor Fathali M. Moghaddam. For the complete report, please click here
