Estimated about 5.000 Foreign Fighters have left Europe to join ISIS – but the dark number is certainly much higher, states Dr. Kristina Eichhorst, Coordinator for
Counter terrorism and conflict Management of the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung (Foundation)
in Berlin in the context of the event “A German perspective. The Terrorist
Threat in Germany - perception and reaction”. Radicalization is a process
that starts in the family, so Eichhorst, and it starts on an individual level.
Since 2001, Germany has launched amongst others initiatives, more than 40 legislative
initiatives, has risen up a joint counter-terrorism center and has set up a hotline
for family with radicalized members.
The initiative A GERMAN PERSPECTIVE is a new series of the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung in Italy. Current topical issues are discussed with experts from Germany.
