Title: Drivers of violent extremism among youth: discussions on prevention

Framework: A discussion within the framework of the Horizon 2020 CONNEKT (Contexts of Violent Extremism in MENA and Balkan Societies) project. Focused on young people aged between 12 and 30 from the MENA region and the Balkans, CONNEKT will analyse seven potential radicalisation factors (religion, digitisation, economic deprivation, territorial inequalities, transnational dynamics, socio-political demands, and educational, cultural and leisure opportunities) on three levels (transnational, community and individual) in order to determine their interrelations and specific significance. Through an interdisciplinary team formed by 14 partners from the region, an innovative methodology will be applied that, along with universities and think tanks, involves civil society actors and local authorities to recommend, based on the results of the empirical research, tools and measures to prevent violent extremism that can be applied both to the countries under study and the European Union.
