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.
William Stephens has a foot in both the worlds of research and practice. His research is concerned with the challenges that polarisation and radicalisation raise for society. Alongside his research, William spends much of his time working alongside groups of youth engaged in efforts for constructive social change in neighbourhoods in Europe. The insights he gains from hundreds of young people in these different communities continuously inspires and gives purpose to his research.
