During the workshop Dr. Pierobon introduced key approaches, concepts, factors and variables explaining radicalization and de-radicalization processes; the challenges faced by researchers (and evaluators) analyzing VE- and PVE-related issues; as well as civil society organizations’ role and concrete contributions.
