Increasingly, teachers, youth workers, and social workers are being called on to ‘build resilience to radicalisation’. But, what does this actually mean? What is resilience to radicalisation, how can it be built, and whose role is it?
Drawing on an interdisciplinary analysis of policies and the perspectives of practitioners themselves, this book offers a fresh look at these questions. Through unpacking different ways of thinking about resilience to radicalisation, this book aims to bring clarity to some of the key issues and debates involved. The book navigates between important critiques of resilience and the need for a practical and legitimate response to the challenge of extremism. Finally, it suggests a way forward for those grappling with this issue.
