CoRE-NRW: Connecting Research on Extremism in North Rhine-Westphalia

CoRE-NRW - "Connecting Research on Extremism in North Rhine-Westphalia" - is a scientific network that deals with the conditions and forms of extremist radicalization and effective countermeasures. The network constructively brings together a wide range of expertise and perspectives. One focus of the network is on researching violent Salafism. However, it also looks at other forms of extremism. For example, right-wing extremism is also analyzed in a comparative structural way.

CoRE-NRW strengthens scientific networking across institutes and specialist disciplines and promotes debates in the field of research. It enables the exchange between science, practice, and civil society. The network not only makes its information accessible to experts from science and practice but also opens it up to a broader public. An overview of all CoRE-NRW projects can be found here:

CoRE-NRW is supported by the Ministry of Culture and Science of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia (MKW) through a coordination center at the Peace and Conflict Research Institute BICC in Bonn.
