Advice on the radicalization of young people and adolescents


The Radicalization Advice Centre 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 call - by e-mail and, if you wish, you can be referred to further advice services and facilities in your region. The experts at the Radicalization Advice Centre can also put you in touch with other people affected and self-help initiatives.

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

The common goal is 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 parties involved will treat your information confidentially. However, if there are concrete signs of danger to yourself and/or others as a result of radicalization, the advice centre will involve the security authorities.

You can contact the advice center without any further requirements.

You do not need to submit any documents.

You can take advantage of the advice free of charge. Standard telephone or Internet charges may apply.

The duration of the consultation depends on the individual case.
