Following the international and regional practices in opposing radicalization that leads to violent extremism and terrorism, as priority security challenges of today’s world and in the direction of a preventive process, a Handbook for prevention of radicalization that leads to violent extremism for the teaching staff from the secondary schools in Republic of North Macedonia has been developed (Recognize, Prevent, Act).
The Handbook highlights the importance of educational values and principles in opposing radicalization that leads to violent extremism. The holistic and pragmatic approach in the education system may contribute to the promotion of tolerance and development of mechanisms for “early recognition” of phenomena and ideologies that promote violent extremism.
The basic methodological tool in the creation of the Handbook is the analysis of positive international practices in opposing violent extremism and radicalization adopted in other countries, and adapted and integrated into the educational context of the Republic of North Macedonia. This Handbook is part of the activities of the “Educate to Prevent” project, and within the aforementioned project, in order to ensure relevance in different geographical and socio-cultural contexts, a research process was previously implemented in several high schools in Skopje, Kumanovo, Tetovo, and Gostivar.
