Hesse Advisory Agency

Religious Tolerance, not Extremism, Frankfurt am Main

As a unit within Violence Prevention Network, the Hesse Advisory Agency targets juveniles, parents and specialist staff who have questions relating to extremism. It offers prevention activities, intervention and deradicalisation as a response to the general hopelessness in dealing with religiously-motivated extremism.

The Advisory Agency contributes towards increasing tolerance towards different world views, as well as the early recognition, avoidance and reversal of radicalisation processes.

Intervention to combat budding radicalisation processes, as well as the targeted deradicalisation work, tackles situations in which people are looking for a way out of extremist ideologies.

The Hesse Advisory Agency is part of the Hesse Prevention Network against Salafism. It is funded by the Hesse Ministry of the Interior and for Sport and implemented under the aegis of Violence Prevention Network.

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.
