Strengthening Resilience of the Youth against Radicalization in the Western Balkans

Participants of Summer School in Albania in 2019.

In 2018, Humanity in Action Bosnia and Herzegovina co-launched Strengthening Resilience of the Youth against Radicalization in the Western Balkans, an initiative aimed at strengthening capacities for resilience among youth in the Western Balkans against radicalization and violent extremism. By raising awareness and promoting shared values as well as social cohesion through interfaith, inter-ethnic, and intercultural dialogues, this program tackles increasing rates of youth radicalization in the Western Balkans.
