Advice on the radicalization of young people and adolescents


The Radicalization Counseling Center of the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF) supports you if you have the impression that someone close to you is turning to a radical Islamist group.

You can obtain basic information via the telephone hotline or - if you do not wish to make a phone call - by e-mail, and if you wish, you can be referred to further counseling services and facilities in your region. The experts at the Radicalization Counseling Center can also put you in touch with other victims and self-help initiatives.

You decide where further talks will take place. This can be at your home, in the counseling office or outside, for example in a café.

The common goal: to strengthen your relationship of trust with the person concerned so that you yourself can slowly bring them back from radicalization or prevent further radicalization.

In principle, all those involved will treat your information confidentially. However, if there are concrete indications of a threat to oneself and/or others as a result of the radicalization, the counseling center will involve the security authorities.

You can contact the counseling center without any further requirements.

You do not need to submit any documents.

You can take advantage of the consultation free of charge. If necessary, standard telephone or Internet charges will apply.

The duration of the consultation depends on the individual case.
