 Goals

For reaching the goal of the curriculum, which is preventing radicalization and violent extremism, the following teaching aims are set:
  • To overcome the 'us' vs. 'them' construction through decategorization and allowing participation in a pluralist discourse
  • To take the perspective of the 'other'; to foster empathy and delegitimize propaganda of violence
  • To provide socially acceptable alternatives to violence promoted by extremist groups
  • To enhance knowledge, awareness and critical thinking skills, in order to make young adolescents resilient to potential recruitment by extremist groups which promote violence and terrorism and to make them challenge the propaganda of these groups
  • To increase emotional control and self-reflection skills
  • To gain a sense of political self-efficacy and empowerment
  • To provide individuals with positive identities
  • To promote European Union values
