The focus groups under Work Package 2 'Mapping challenges, needs, innovative solutions required in the process of prevention and de-radicalization' will be carried-out with participation of first-line practioners, including academia representatives, educators, youth workers, social services and specialist professionals working with youth and child as psychologists, minor’s services and LEAs.
Focus groups will be grouped on three different dimensions:
1. Religious-inspired extremism;
2. Right-wing extremism with a specific focus on Islamophobia, hate and anti-immigrant crimes and
3. Left-wing extremism with a special focus on anarchist, animal rights, environmentalist and separatist ideologies.
Using this three-tiered structured, ARMoUR ensures that the tools and content of the experimental laboratories adequately address jointly or independently all strands of extremist ideologies. The aim of the focus groups is to (a) validate the preliminary findings obtained as a result of the expert interviews and (b) to validate the concept of the experimental laboratories.
Each focus group will include up to 8-10 participants from the respective partner country where the event takes place.
More information on the implementation of each focus group will be published in due time! Meanwhile, in case of questions or comments please get let us know via the Contact Section.
