France to unveil plan to tackle radicalisation

France is set to announce a comprehensive new plan to combat radicalisation amid growing concern over the increasing number of young French people joining jihadist groups in Syria.

French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve is submitting an anti-radicalisation plan, which includes 20 concrete measures, to the government on Wednesday after months of intensive research by his ministry.

The strategy is designed to tackle radicalism from its nascence – often emerging within the realm of cyber indoctrination – to advanced stages where jihadist volunteers travel to take part in the movement, either in a battlefield or zone of operation, according to French officials.

Under the plan, family members will be able to alert authorities if they fear a relative has been attending fundamentalist mosques or visiting radical websites.

The French Interior Ministry estimates that nearly 700 French citizens or residents have gone to Syria to fight since the conflict began three years ago.

About 15 per cent of them are women who accompany their husbands, sometimes with their children.


Sorry but the period of time connection to the operation is exceeded.
