  • RISULTATO

The goal of SAFIRE is to improve fundamental understanding of radicalization processes and use this knowledge to develop principles to improve (the implementation) of interventions designed to prevent, halt and reverse radicalization. SAFIRE will develop a process model of radicalization, describing the process from moderation to extremism, based on a non-linear dynamic systems approach and a typology of radical groups. This is an innovative approach that has not been explicitly applied to this area up until now. Principles regarding interventions will be developed in close concert with the models, and will be applied in a longitudinal, empirical study. Important aspects of radicalization that will also be addressed are: the relationship between national culture and radicalization, radicalization on the Internet, and defining observable indicators of the radicalization process. The main deliverable is a CD containing on one hand a detailed description of the work done in SAFIRE and on the other an interactive, accessible overview of the project designed for quick, user-friendly accessibility to the main points. Envisaged end-users are policy makers, researchers in the field of radicalization and professionals who work with high-risk individuals.

The results of this project will increase the understanding of both conceptual aspects of radicalization (e.g. the psycho-social dynamics of radical groups and individuals), and practical characteristics and modus operandi of radical groups (e.g. recruitment techniques). In addition, the results will increase understanding of field efforts and interventions when, why and how they work thus helping focus the allocation of resources and the implementation of interventions.
