Public Debate in Vushtrri – “Support for the Promise” Anti-Radicalisation Campaign

Published at: 2017-02-21
21 February 2017 – Our ‘Support for the Promise’ campaign continues. Representatives of civil society, municipal authorities, police, councils of students, parents and teachers, the Islamic Community, youth activists and ordinary citizens participated in an interactive discussion organized by the Balkans Group. Participants debated about conflicting views between the traditional Albanian culture and practicing of traditional islam and post-war way of interpretation, largely imported by external factors. Radical interpretation of islam is not welcomed and community calls upon institutions to raise awareness against this phenomenon. The project has built new grassroots coalitions and identified potential local credible voices who could stand in support of the community efforts against radicalisation and extremism.
