What is it about?
The team from Security Policy Research Center in Pristina will launch a project to counter violent extremism through positive narratives on social media. They will tackle the abundance of radical ideologies from religous scholars being consumed by young people in the Balkans that lead to radicalization. Short video interviews with leading Islamic scholars and other community influencers in Kosovo will be produced, promoting positive counter narratives and a moderate interpretation of Islam. Through a well targeted campaign on social networks, these resonant voices will reach vulnerable audiences living both in Kosovo and abroad.
