In recent years there has been a rise of right-wing extremism and radicalisation which has had an effect on mainstream politics and attitudes in society. Are our governments doing enough to combat this? What does it mean for the development of our societies? In this episode we discuss the topic with Dr Daniel Koehler, the co-founder of the first peer-reviewed open-access journal on de-radicalization and the director of the German Institute on Radicalization Studies. The links to some of Dr Koehler’s work are attached below.
