Nowadays, the term radicalisation is something of a cliché that is easily associated with other notions like jihadism, extremism, terrorism, etc. Furthermore, as a result of the attacks over the last fifteen years or so in Europe, there have been a plethora of articles and training courses on this topic.
Rather than take up a position on the issue, we approach the subject in a more modest way to help people understand the radicalisation process. We will attempt to define certain terms and provide ways to ensure early identification of the signs of radicalisation of an individual. Finally, we will indicate the process to be followed and the bodies to contact when signs of radicalisation are observed.
