The ARMOUR Focus Group in Italy was held in Bologna (Emilia-Romagna Juvenile Court) on 10 June 2019 and was hosted by our partner Agenfor International Foundation.

Seven participants attended the focus group, one took part via Skype. Among the professionals there were the President of the Court of Minors of Emilia-Romagna, a social worker, a sociologist, a mediator, a community director for minors and young adults.

As a methodology a semi-structured discussion was followed starting from the theme of radicalization and understanding of violent extremism, in order to identify and communicate cases of radicalization with the design of a specific program for effective prevention and intervention with young people and minors.

The joint results will present the findings of all focus groups and will be published in the last quarter of 2019.
