Aims of Rhizome against Polarization

Rhizome against polarization aims to prevent social polarization and violent radicalization in Europe, especially in Spain, Italy and Austria, through a human rights and community-based approach and the strengthening of civil society.

Rhizome against polarization, whose name is said to recall the widespread and stability-giving root networks of plants, is seen as a good basis against violent extremism. It challenges the current prejudices and definitions of “violent extremism” by looking at all forms of expression and avoiding the risk of stigmatising a particular collective.
