Rotterdam plans to do more in the fight against radicalization.
The Report- and Advice Center Radicalization of the Rotterdam municipality is going to give more training to youth workers and teachers, among others, in how to recognize radicalization. There will also be more meetings in which professionals are made aware of radicalization. This was written in a letter that Mayor Ahmed Aboutaleb (PvdA) wrote the the city council on Tuesday.
According to Aboutaleb, the number of the employees in the report and advice center recently expanded to meed the increasing demand for aid. Now more than before, employees go out to inform and train people who come into contact with radicalization. These are authoritative people from Muslim communities, youth workers, employees of the youth desks, teachers and staff of district teams.
