€10m to combat radicalisation

The cabinet has set aside €10m to combat the radicalisation of young Muslims, home affairs minister Guusje ter Horst told MPs on Wednesday.

Seven ministries are working on a joint plan to tackle the problem and this is expected to be sent to parliament in May. Ter Horst declined to give further details, but said young women are playing an increasingly active role in the radicalisation process, particularly on the internet.
