CONFERENCE: RADICALIZATION / DERADICALIZATION

Politics

Indonesia’s foreign policy, which orientates itself towards multilateralism and peaceful, balanced conflict resolution, is the premise for Indonesia to become a close partner to Germany as well as the EU in terms of security policy. Considering the dramatic developments in Syria and Iraq, the Indonesian government is particularly interested in an international knowledge exchange about dealing with radicalized young people, like those that are being recruited worldwide by the terror organization “Islamic State”.

During a conference with the topic “radicalization/ deradicalization”, representatives from governments, universities and think tanks, religious NGOs and civil societies, as well as security services from Germany and Indonesia came together to discuss different approaches in dealing with this phenomenon. The main focus of this conference was the social framework conditions, as well as possible preventive measures.

The project was organized in collaboration with the Indonesian Yayasan Paramadina and the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung. Thematically, it built on the already existing “Islam dialogues” of the Federal Foreign Office in Germany.
