How can human rights education (HRE) and education for democratic citizenship (EDC) prevent extremism and promote democratic participation among European youth? This challenging and actual question is what 30 participants, representing 22 DARE member organisations from 14 European countries, is set out to explore during a three-days network meeting i Oslo from the 29th September to 1st October 2015. The overall aim of the seminar is to promote democratic participation and to prevent radicalisation among European youth. This will be achieved by developing new, and share already used, participating methods in the field of HRE/EDC, and to increase the awareness among European educational NGOs on how HRE/EDC can be used as tools in this regard. The network meeting also aim to encourage cooperation between the DARE members. Following the seminar, there will be made a DARE manual on EDC/HRE against extremism, which will reach out to a global audience.
