Project Description

Second Summer School: Youth Against Extremism and Radicalization

Slovak Security Policy Institute (SSPI) organizes Second Summer School: Youth Against Extremism and Radicalization.

Main objective of the project is to support development of tolerance among youth and children. It serves as a response to the increasing number of racist, xenophobic, anti-Semitic and other manifestations of intolerance and discrimination among an increasingly young population, while this phenomenon is present also at high schools and even elementary schools.

In 22nd – 24th June 2018, high-school students will gather in Banská Štiavnica to attend lectures and workshops led by leading Slovak experts on the issues of extremism and radicalization in Slovakia.

After summer school, Slovak Security Policy Institute will also publish a text-book with presented lectures, which will be distributed electronically and via post to Slovak high schools.
