PYATIGORSK, June 25 (Itar-Tass) - A regional conference that will be held Tuesday in Pyatigorsk, the administrative center of Russia’s North Caucasian Federal District, will concentrate on the patterns of counteracting the ideology of terrorism and on elaborating the well-substantiated grounds helpful in de-radicalizing the Caucasian young people, a spokesperson for the organizing committee told Itar-Tass.
The initiative to hold his seminar has been supported by the staff of the Russian President’s plenipotentiary representative at the North Caucasus Federal District and the National Antiterrorist Committee.
“The forum will bring together representatives of the agencies of state power, activists of civic society, businessmen, clerics, and reporters working for federal and regional mass media,” the spokesperson said.
A plenary session and two working sections have been scheduled. The experts, clerics and public activists will look at how the Internet could be used for criticizing the ideologies of religious and political extremism.
The conference is supposed to formulate the main theses for laying the groundwork of educational and information efforts from the angle of traditional, pan-Islamic and grassroots values.
“Particular attention will be given to the mass media efforts in the sphere of de-radicalizing and upbringing of the young generations of people,” the organizers said.
