Prevention of Youth Radicalisation Through Self-Awareness on Cognitive Biases
[Diana Rieger, Brigitte Naderer]

Funded by EUROPEAN COMMISSION, Directorate-General for Migration and Home Affairs Migration and Security Fonds


PRECOBIAS is a project that aims to counteract possible radicalization on social media in the long term by strengthening the media criticism of young people online and promoting critical thinking among young people at risk. PRECOBIAS is intended to help young people at risk to reflect on their opinions and to recognize and understand their mental processes and cognitive prejudices. In the longer term, PRECOBIAS wants to bring about a change in behavior to arm young people against online advertising for extremist, radical content. For this purpose, an online campaign is being designed, which will be carried out and evaluated in several EU countries.
