Ministry of the Interior and Federal Affairs

The Land Coordination and Advice Centre in Schleswig-Holstein primarily looks after young people who are at risk of undergoing religious radicalisation.

The Centre’s prime goal is to establish an understanding of democracy among children and juveniles, and to break the chain of discrimination and radicalisation. One of its focuses is on preventing Salafism, given that Salafism is currently considered to be the most dynamic Islamist movement.

Staff working for the Land programme support and advise parents, relatives and friends of young people all over the Land who are becoming or have already become radicalised. They also help people who are seeking a way out of the lives which they live in the Salafist scene on their way back to a self-determined life.

They analyse the situation together and seek solutions with the aid of experts.

The tasks of the Land programme also include:

  • creating a public awareness of the topics of Islamophobia and religiously-motivated extremism
  • educational work and political education in schools, youth centres and kindergartens
  • basic and further training of teaching staff
  • Land-wide networking of institutions, authorities and institutions such as Muslim associations, schools or parents’ associations in order to enhance the commitment to civil peace
  • supporting specific projects on the topics of religious extremism and Muslimophobia and Islamophobia, which should be carried out in cooperation with Islamic religious communities and Muslim associations

The Land Coordination and Advice Centre (Land PROvention programme) was established by the Land Government in April 2015. Its organising body is the Turkish Community in Schleswig-Holstein.

Wichtige Mitteilung


There have been several occasions very recently in which people have pretended to be employees of the Federal Office and asked for an interview at which they questioned asylum applicants intensively. This took place in some cases on the pretext that a second hearing was allegedly needed. Important: The Federal Office does not conduct home visits! These individuals do not work for the Federal Office. The Federal Office has therefore filed criminal charges. If something similar happens to you, or if you observe anything of this nature as a carer, please report this to your local police station.Interviewers from reputable survey institutes who are currently conducting interviews as part of research projects in which data are collected on a voluntary basis clearly state who they are working for. They also give the name of the survey institute and prove this by showing the appropriate documentation. This means that you can make enquiries should you have any doubts.
