Letter: D


Deradicalisation – This very contested term is often used referring to the process of abandoning an extremist worldview and therefore disengaging with an attitude that is accepting violence as means to social change. On the other hand, radicalism and radicalisation per se do not lead to violence or acceptance of violence. Therefore, the use of de-radicalisation is normally limited to the work of practitioners in the field of EXIT programmes, supporting violent offenders, terrorists or supporters of terrorist ideologies to find alternatives.
