Mapping drivers of violent

extremism among youth

to improve prevention

A Horizon 2020

EU-funded project

CONNEKT (Contexts of Violent Extremism in MENA and Balkan Societies) is a Horizon 2020 EU-funded research project that explores the drivers of radicalisation and violent extremism among young people aged from 12 to 30 in eight countries: Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Egypt, Jordan, Kosovo, Morocco, North Macedonia, and Tunisia.

The project will map and establish interrelationships and specific significance of seven potential drivers within three different levels of analysis.

Representatives from the 14 organisations that make up the consortium that will develop the project until August 2023 met in Barcelona the 10th February 2020 to take part in the kick-off of the project and a launch event.
