Starting next week, the association “Neustart” will coordinate a deradicalization project on behalf of the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution and Counter Terrorism (BVT). People who voluntarily want to leave an extremist scene and ideology should receive the necessary social work support.
The target group includes people who are already under observation or who are currently at risk of becoming radicalized due to a lack of psychosocial support. On the other hand, people who have already committed crimes should also be supported after their release from prison, if it is determined that probation assistance is not sufficient to prevent radicalization.
More information (in German) is available here.
