18 ÜberblickSemi-strukturierte, nachvollziehbare und szenario-basierte Übung‘4R’ Zyklus Design: React, Response, Repercussions, Review (Reaktion, Antwort, Auswirkung, Bewertung)Übung und Szenario ist in drei Phasen aufgeteilt
20 Die Rolle des TrainersDer Trainer ist der Schlüssel für eine erfolgreiche Übung. Der Trainer führt die Glaubhafte Stimme durch die Übung innerhalb eines gesetzen Rahmens und erlaubt auch Raum für Diskussion und InteraktionDer Trainer hört zu, engagiert sich, fragt, fordert heraus, ermutigt, unterstützt und bezieh jeden in die Diskussion mit ein
21 Ziel der ÜbungDas Ziel von SMART CV ist ein Training für die Unterstützung der Entwicklung von Glaubwürdigen Stimmen (Credible Voices) zur Verfügung zu stellen. Diese sollen durch ihr Handeln die Bürger in ihren Gemeinden auch mit Hilfe von sozialen Medien schützen, um die Möglichkeiten der Radikalisierung nach terroristischen Anschlägen zu minimieren.
22 Übungsziel Am Ende der Übung wird der Teilnehmer in der Lage sein; Zu erklären wie extreme und efährliche Kommentare in sozialen Netzwerken einen negativen Effekt für die Geesellschaft nach einem terroristischen Anschlag haben könnenExplain the role of an on-line Credible Voice to safeguard against opportunities for radicalisation following a terrorist eventDemonstrate how a Credible Voice can support Law Enforcement Agency efforts to counter extreme and harmful narratives online following a terrorist eventExplain how they can provide positive narratives and become a Credible Voice of their community to prevent the opportunities for radicalisation following a terrorist event
23 Session Objectives Explanation of terms Table top Exercise Final thoughtsThe aim of today’s exercise is to consider the role that members of society can play during or after an incident that can have an impact on their community, and how social media can be used.Before we start the exercise we will briefly discuss what social media means, who and what is a credible voice and provide an overview of radicalisation.Following on from this there will be a table top exercise and finally we will focus on some final thoughts and take any questions you may have.
25 Social Media – here are just a select few examples which you might be familiar with.
26 What is Social Media?Online technology which people can use to share opinions, different perspectives and insights.It can take the form of TEXT, IMAGES, AUDIO and VIDEOExamples include:‘Facebook’ - social networking‘Twitter’ – micro-blogging‘Flikr’ – video / photo sharing siteNews blogsSo - what is social media?Essentially, social media incorporates the online technology and methods through which people can share content, personal opinions, swap different perspectives and insights into world issues or events.It can take the form of:Text - text is often used to put across opinions or write blog posts.Images - images and photos can display anything from holiday photos to shots by professional photographers.Audio - social media lets you create podcasts for users to download.Video - video sites mean that you'll be able to record a video of your child's birthday for friends all over the world to seeJust a few examples, which you might have heard of include:Facebook – this is what is known as a social networking site where people can share information about themselves and what they are doing and converse with friends worldwide.Twitter – this is what is known as a micro-blogging site, where people write a small message (a ‘Tweet’) about what they are doing, what is happening, or voice their opinions about a particular event or situation. These messages can then be seen across the globe by anyone with access to Twitter.Flikr – this is an example of a photo and video sharing website where people can upload their pictures and share them with either a specific selection of people or anyone with access to the internet.News Blogs – where news providers can update their followers about the most recent and breaking news headlines, and people can respond with their own comments and opinions.
27 What is Radicalisation? A process by which an individual or group comes to adopt increasingly extreme political, social, or religious ideals and aspirations that reject or undermine the norm
28 Ursachen für Radikslisierung Ihre Ideen? Missinterpretation einer Religion / IdeologieSoziale AusgrenzungDiskriminierungFehlende soziale IdentitätJugendlich, leicht beeinflussbarÖkonomische Benachteiligung, ArmutHumiliationDistrust of those in powerBeing targeted by a radical groupSeeing innocent people caught in the cross fire of warGlobalisation – mass transitInternet, use of social media = ease of communicationThere are many factors which influence how and why someone becomes radicalised.These factors tend to be linked.It is very rare that there is only one reason which influences a person to adopt a radical view.Some examples of the triggers of radicalisation include:1. Misinterpretation of an idea, for example misunderstanding a religious book, a meaning, or the message a group conveys.2. Exclusion / rejection from certain social groups.3. Discrimination / harassment due to being from a certain background, culture or religion. Whether this is real of perceived.4. Young, easily influenced individuals with a lack of social identity – who are trying to work out who they are and which group they belong to.An example of such might be a young British born Pakistani who is encouraged to speak Urdu at home and follow a traditional upbringing but speaks English at school and is encouraged by his friends to follow a western way of life. This young man is unsure which group to identify with and when taken on holiday to Pakistan to visit family his cousins tease him that he does not fit into their culture either.5. Economic deprivation, poverty or feeling unfairly disadvantaged compared to others.6. Feelings of humiliation – whether this is in person or on behalf of people from a certain culture, triggered by:Witnessing police brutalityA distrust of the government or those in a position of powerDisagreeing with particular policies.A countries involvement in war.Seeing innocent people being caught up in the cross fire of war.7. Being targeted by a radical group –An example is X who lost a parent at a young age as a result of war, who was bullied at school and never felt accepted. X meets a far right wing group that offers them a feeling of acceptance and being part of a family for the first time in their life and quickly becomes indoctrinated in the views of this group, even though prior to this X had no involvement in the far right wing and held no radical right wing views.8. Globalisation – developments in technology, mass transit and the internet and the use of social media make it far easier for radical ideas to be shared across the globe amongst mass audiences.
29 The Aftermath of Radicalisation This is a brief example of how radicalisation can affect communities.
30 Just over 7 years ago ladies and gentleman three young men, from less than ½ mile from where we are sitting now, got into a car, picked up a fourth male from Luton and went on to London to commit the biggest atrocity the UK has seen since the 2nd World War – the 7/7 bombings, as a result of being radicalised.The authorities had no suspicion that the attack was being planned.The ground floor flat in Leeds being used by this team as their bomb factory smelt of noxious fumes, plants and hedges outside the windows were dead and stained from hydrogen peroxide fumes, and paintwork inside the premises was blistered. Neighbours later said that they noticed these things but did not know who to speak to.Had we had a Prevent team in place, or had the right people to speak out in the community – could this attack have been avoided?The answer to this question is that we will never know, but we might have been better prepared if credible voices within the community had been identified.

33 Imagine you are residents within a city. City ProfileIndustrial town surrounded by large farming areaDiverse populationHigh poverty and unemploymentResentment towards the immigrant populationLack of support and grants for farmersHome of a large University – Domestic and International studentsEvents: Up and coming International Cycle Race and march of troops returning from AfghanistanImagine you are residents within a city.This city is an industrial town that also has a large farming community in the surrounding areas.The city has a very diverse and established community comprising a number of people from ethnic minority’s particularity from Pakistan, India and the Caribbean. The majority of recent emerging communities are Somalis, followed by Iranians, Iraqis and Eritreans (This can easily be substituted for Roma Gypsies, Turkish Kurds etc…) Because of the fragmented nature of these communities, there is evidence that they do not have a collective voice and may lack capacity to support the mainstream messages against radicalisation. The youth groups in the area have not had financial support or facilities available to them that more established communities have. As a result the new and emerging communities rely on ‘café culture’ and ‘cyber café’ meeting groups and regularly meet as street groups. They regularly use social media to contact relatives and friends in their Mother Countries. The rise in poverty and unemployment has contributed to a growing sense of not only anti-immigrant resentment but also anger towards both the local and national governments. There is also anger amongst the farming community about for EU grants local grants are not being given to those who really need it.The City University:The University is home to both British and international students from such places as Israel, Pakistan and the United States of America.Upcoming events:The start of a world renowned cycle race is due in the city in a few weeks time. To celebrate this there will also be a march by troops returning from combat duties in Afghanistan. This is to vastly increase visitors to the city and also attract a large television audience from around the world.

49 Case StudyDuring the summer riots of 2011 in Britain an unemployed landscape gardener named Sutcliffe, who had just one previous conviction, created a Face book page entitled ‘The Warrington Riots’ and urged 400 friends to join him in creating mayhem.A further male named Blackshaw (a petty criminal) created an event called ‘Smash Down in Northwich Town’ and invited 147 people to gather at a McDonald’s in the centre of the historic town for a looting spree.Both pages were quickly spotted by the police and taken down before any violence occurred.Even though nothing happened as a result of these pages both males were arrested, charged and were later sentenced to 4 years each in prison for inciting riot.
50 Life in the city post incident… Hand out information sheets:Two weeks laterAnd after this has been read and digested…Three weeks laterThe groups should be given time to consider what has happened post event, and can be given a few minutes to chat about this.There is no requirement to ask them to feed back their thoughts.
