Strengthening social commitment against radicalisation
The National Committee on Religiously Motivated Extremism, or BAG RelEx (abbreviation of the German term “Bundesarbeitsgemeinschaft religiös begründeter Extremismus”), encourages and supports a country-wide network of civil society actors who are committed to successful and lasting prevention and de-radicalisation in the field of religiously motivated extremism. The Committee provides a platform for the exchange of expertise and supports these actors and organisations in the preparation and development of quality standards. BAG RelEx represents the interests of civil society actors in their efforts at prevention and de-radicalisation relative to organisations and individuals in politics, research and administration, and introduces their experiences and perspectives into scientific and political debates. BAG RelEx gives out information to interested persons and those seeking advice, and it provides contacts on site.
