Hesse Competence Centre against Extremism

The Hesse Information and Competence Centre against Extremism (HKE) coordinates and networks efforts all over the Land to prevent and intervene against anti-constitutional activities. The HKE pursues an approach in this regard which operates across phenomena, departments and organisations.

On the one hand, the HKE comprises the central initiative in all parts of the Land to prevent and intervene against anti-constitutional activities from right-wing, left-wing and Islamist extremist circles, as well as coordinating and optimising cooperation.

On the other and, the steering group of the HKE guides the strategic orientation of the Information and Competence Centre, and supports the networking activities. The steering group is comprised of the departments involved (Interior, Justice, Education and Culture as well as Social Affairs), as well of the Hesse Land Office for the Protection of the Constitution (LfV Hessen) and of the Hesse Land Criminal Police Office (HLKA). As an option, it can be expanded to include further civil society stakeholders.

The HKE is furthermore the port of call when it comes to issues on existing or planned programmes/projects for state and civil society organisations, and it holds deliberations on the corresponding promotion that is available.

The "Hesse Information and Competence Centre against Extremism" (HKE) was established under the responsibility of the Hesse Ministry of the Interior and for Sport (HMdIS), and was presented to the public in May 2013.
