UNSC discusses ways of stopping radicalization of young people

How do you prevent young people from being radicalized or from traveling to join extremist groups abroad? And how do you turn the tide of radical ideology?

Highlights: 

  • The exclusion from society that experts say seeds youth radicalization is a factor that has driven some four-thousand people to join ISIL in Syria and Iraq.
  •  Youth radicalization came under the spotlight at the UN Security Council meeting Thursday as ministers and ambassadors debated ways to tackle the growing problem both now and in the long term.
  • Inclusion may be the answer by creating more inclusive societies, funding youth policies, and educating the young.
