Denmark's Deradicalisation Efforts

Deradicalisation is part of the Danish Government’s preventive efforts, as described in the Government’s National action plan, “A Common and safe future”, which was presented in January 2009. Deradicalisation is also a key element of the preventive efforts in the EU which Denmark contributes to. In the present context, the term “deradicalisation” is understood as denoting the mechanisms which can help individuals to leave extremist circles or dissociate themselves from extremism. Thus, it refers both to the concepts of deradicalisation and disengagement.
