This research aimed at analysing the current state of the art in the area of youth marginalisation and radicalisation in Romania in order to inform the development of tailored positive prevent measures and tools.

The research involved both desk-based research and user feedback. Following a conceptualisation of radicalisation and GLM, the national legal developed in response to the EU Youth Strategy, the European Agenda for Security and the ET 2020 Framework was assessed. It also revealed that GLM interventions and practices in Romania have been poorly developed in the justice system and the NGO sector. The continuity of the NGO interventions is limited to the duration and amount of funding. A mapping of key governmental and non-governmental actors at the local and national level was also carried out. This step is relevant for promoting the project activities and outcomes. The research results were validated through a one youth-led seminar involving both young people and representatives of relevant public authorities. Participants stressed the need develop GLM prevent tools adapted to the country profile for professionals in the public and non-governmental sectors along with a set of support measures for socially disadvantaged and marginalized groups.
