Researchers from PFSC and State Islamic University (UIN) Walisongo, Indonesia are conducting collaborative research to determine the potential role of families in preventing radicalisation in Indonesia.

Two group of parents have been recruited for participation, including parents who were formerly members of radical Islamic communities and parents who were a typical community sample in Central Java, Indonesia. We aim to identify parental perceptions of the process of radicalisation among parents as former members of radical communities and Indonesian Islamic typical community parents. This information may help design future parenting support programs that can prevent Indonesian children from risks to be involved in radicalisation.
