In this speech, Professor Ridha Tlili presents a practical alternative to fight against religious radicalisation in his country, Tunisia.

During his presentation, he will talk about the experience of Ahmed Tlili for Democratic Culture Foundation that, for years, has worked directly with religious mediators, imams, preachers and teachers in Koranic schools (unregulated religious education) and of the Kuttab (traditional preschool). He considers very necessary to negotiate directly, and in a pragmatic (not ideological) way, with these agents who detain and issue the keys to religious discourse.

In this context, the Tlili Foundation has designed a civic training programme aimed at religious mediators in order to achieve their social integration, so that they are not left out of the democratic process and at the same time mitigate radicalisation by peaceful means.
