End violent behaviour and Fragment Movements

One-to-One Interventions

Aim to build rapport with an individual involved in far-right extremist activity in order to widen the gap between them and the movement, demonstrate the consequences of their actions, help them to identify a different life path, and support them to achieve it. The length of intervention will vary according to need. They can also be conducted with groups; they have successfully dissolved youth street groups in Norway, Denmark and the Netherlands.

Exit programmes

Aim to offer a structured route out of extremist movements through de-radicalisation and a longer-term support package to re-integrate into society. These involve one-to-one interventions, but also include counselling and intense psychological support, practical help with housing and jobs and pursuit of interests and goals. Practitioners take different approaches to the balance between challenging and reshaping ideology and practical help or social support. Some are initiated in prison. They largely rely on voluntary participation.
