How and what to educate on values in times of pluralism and polarisation?

Our research project "Growing up radical? Fostering well-being and preventing radicalisation in education" is interested in the elements influencing children and young people's value learning and worldview development trajectories especially regarding extremist ideologies. The aim of our research group is to bring new insights and methodological openings into the fields of resilience, societal polarisation and extremist ideologies by approaching the topic from the perspective of young people as well as the educational institutions in which their social interaction is to a large extent embedded. Our international research group includes members from the University of Helsinki (FIN), Stockholm University (SWE), and the University of Oxford (UK).
