Ideals Adrift

 
Ideals Adrift is a project that analyses the role of families and other educators and the problems they face when dealing with youngsters who are going through a process of radicalisation. The radicalisation of young people is above all viewed as a security risk. Almost all research into this phenomenon has been carried out from a legal, criminological or socio-psychological perspective with a focus on detecting and containing the risks posed by radicalisation. In the light of the political developments of the last years this is entirely understandable but perhaps not altogether wise. Research and theory development from a pedagogical perspective can make a significant contribution towards a better understanding of radicalisation processes and possibly offer new points of departure for intervention strategies. In this study the authors examine the role of educators, social workers and teachers, and the problems they face when dealing with young people who are going through a process of radicalisation. The project
attempts to provide insight into the pedagogical conditions for the development of extreme ideals and suggests starting points for developing effective countermeasures
