- 28 Feb 2017Radicalisation and extremism risks in Bulgaria: towards more effective diagnostic and assessment tools
Over the last decade radicalisation and extremism are of growing concern for European societies. New risks of Islamist and far-right radicalisation have impelled the introduction of policies, the effects of which are only now being evaluated.

The rise of Islamist and right-wing radicalisation processes among disaffected young people is pushing some to acts of terrorism and is a growing concern. Many EU Member States have been proactive in countering this phenomenon and have acquired substantial experience in developing prevention and de-radicalisation policies and programmes. However, many European national authorities have followed a ‘trial-and-error’ approach, adopting untried and untested measures in the face of an immediate threat and in response to public concerns.

well as internal as indicated by the rise in home-grown Islamist terrorists, as well as of nationalistic and
anti-immigrant movements and far-right aggression. An accurate picture of the spread, nature and trends
in the extremist and terrorist activity and actors is paramount to formulating strategic policy approaches and effectively allocating available resources.
