In a context of increased radicalization among young people aged 13 to 25, the YARIM project centers itself around three basic observations:
- Young people find it difficult to build their identity, to develop their own ideas, which therefore creates a perfect environment for radicalizations and exploitation.
- The institutions of various States are distancing themselves from or even rejecting these young people, which defies the basic principles of democracy.
- It is challenging for youth workers to talk about religion with the young people they are working with and caring for.
YARIM is an innovative project when it comes to preventing the risks of violent radicalization, because it aims to teach and listen to this young population and wants to bring forward their right to express themselves and to be recognized as valuable members of society.
