Recent events in our Euro-Mediterranean communities have led the Association of Human Rights Educators and its partners to analyse what role youth work could play to prevent violent extremism especially affecting young people.
Despite the complexity of dealing with violent extremism, the project wants to contribute to address some root causes from the perspective of youth work instead of focusing on securitarian and counter-radicalisation policies.
Through examples and practical tools 25 educators, youth workers and youth leaders from the Euro-Mediterranean area will develop youth work competences to identify violent extremism root causes and address them through youth work techniques.
The course will take place from the 14th to the 21st October 2018 (arrival and
departure dates) in Coma-ruga (Tarragona)
