It is beyond doubt that radicalisation is one of the increasing challenges for contemporary Europe; it often escalates – especially among youth — into various forms of extremism. It is represented primarily by radicalisation among Muslims and, often in response to this, by a revival of many European traditional forms of radicalism that relate to nationalism and xenophobia. The identity crisis of individuals is listed among the main causes that serve as a common ground for all of them.
