DARE – Dialogue on radicalisation and equality

The project explores young people’s encounters with radical and extremist messages and milieus, how these messages are received, and how they undertake choices about the direction onward. The radical milieus include both the extreme right and extreme Islamism.

DARE is primarily based on qualitative interviews with young people between 12 and 30 in several countries, as this is the target group for recruitment, and because existing research sees them as especially vulnerable for radicalisation.

DARE is directly directed towards policy and practical application among stakeholders involved via various committees, user groups and fora for participation. Through such a collaboration DARE whishes to develop tools and ways of action appliable for use among young people in both formal and informal contexts, to combat violent radicalisation.

DARE is financed by Horizon 2020, EU’s frameprogram for research and innovation. The project includes partners in Belgium, Croatia, France, Germany, Greece, Malta, Norway, Poland, Russia, the Netherlands, Great Britain, Tunisia and Turkey, that is 13 countries. The project started in May 2017, will last 4 years and is coordinated by the University of Manchester. Norwegian partners are HIOA, represented with colleagues from NOVA and LUI, in addition the University of Oslo, represented with CERES.
