Foreboding, it could be said of the interview you’re about to see. It was shot two days before the attacks in Paris. How to tackle the radicalisation and recruitment of EU citizens by terrorist organisations? At the initiative of MEP Rachida Dati, the debate has long been open in the European Parliament. In her report, the response is unequivocal: more coordination and cooperation is needed between the Member States. We asked her questions coming from different players in the field. Rachida Dati, the number is impressive: more than 5,000, mainly young people have gone to Syria or Iraq in recent years. You've written a report on this subject. We sent this report to a lot of people who read it and who have a lot of questions for you. The first comes from France, the French Muslim Council. Let's listen to it. Isn't it urgent for Member States to look at textbooks and review the knowledge passed on to future generations destined to live in a period different from ours in order to fight the lack of a religious education and thus clashes of mutual ignorance and to transmit more highly developed critical thinking skills. How does the EU plan to build its common policy to prevent youth radicalism? Thank you. The question is clearly about education. The question of education is necessarily central to the serious matter and scourge that radicalisation is. There are schools with real social problems that lead a part of our youth to no longer identify with the nation they belong to. They identify themselves through the smallest common denominator that can sometimes be religion, a perversion of religion. But it must be taken into account... Where it gets complicated... As you know, education is a national competence. I was just getting to it. How can you talk about Europe... Everyone has their own history. England's approach is completely different from France's community-based approach, and so is Germany's. So how is prevention done today? Via education. Via the fight against inequalities. And so every country must first have a policy targeting inequalities. And first of all in schools. In France, inequalities have widened and worsened in schools. Is that something you see across Europe? -Yes, of course. Because, if you like, it has been very much a social question from the start. So... In Europe, we take our time, we have been praised for our model of integration. So the question today - as for a long time it's been difficult for us to say that our immigration policies must be European, today the integration policy must be European. We'll return to this with another question. Let's we move on to Denmark, a country that's also been affected by terrorism. Where the approach is a bit different, especially concerning those who return. Let's listen. In our work on de-radicalisation we see online radicalisation as a major challenge. We know that intelligence services are looking over the internet, that websites are being closed and banned. In our schools we try to teach youngsters how to behave and navigate safely on the internet, but still we see youngsters being radicalised through the internet. What would you do about that? That's the real problem. Radicalisation and jihadism now happen in two ways. They happen via the internet or in prison. For the most part, adolescents become radicalised over the internet or in prison. I've made proposals in this direction, to make internet giants criminally responsible, because the internet cannot just claim to be a mere channel that lets everything pass. Today, all the jihadist organisations, all the criminal and terrorist organisations use the net to attract, to recruit people. But how would you make the internet responsible? Today you can remove content. Look, the Ministry of the Interior in France can demand internet giants to remove content. They have a responsibility. But when you see how much information there is online, the calls for jihad, the videos that are much better done than anything by governments in Europe... How would you manage this in practice? -The internet giants can... They make a lot of money from the distribution of these videos and these sites. Why? Because of the publicity surrounding them. There could be a fundamental problem, in the question of this lawyer, Mr Martins. He is a criminal lawyer in Brussels. His question. Mrs Dati, don't you think that for this prevention of radicalisation to work, the geopolitical problem in the Middle East must first be treated? Let's say it like it is: since the Westerners' interventions, the situation has become completely unmanageable years ago already. Everyone is familiar with the geopolitical question, that's why you've reacted to it. Now, isn't he right to say - well, we can do both at the same time, but is it not high time to find a solution to this? No, because all the questions are linked. What is important today is to be able to... The fight against inequalities begins at school. Concerning the geopolitical problem, we have a responsibility in Syria, in Iraq, in Afghanistan. We have a responsibility. But we're not the only ones. The Gulf countries have a responsibility. It saddens me greatly that European policies and European political reasoning don't expect Saudi Arabia to have a role in what's happening in the world now. The last question. The representatives of the UK prisons have sent their point of view, what they call a statement regarding what they want to do. We take the threat of radicalisation very seriously, and work with a range of organisations to provide intervention programmes in prisons. We have measures in place to deal with radicalisation, including moving offenders to other establishments, using segregation where necessary, and working with prison chaplains. As previously announced, the Secretary of State has commissioned a review to look at how we deal with the threat of extremism and radicalisation in prisons. For them, the problem is clearly at the prison level. There's a word that shocks me, segregation in prisons. Is that the solution, to simply separate... No, we didn't keep that in the report, having visited the correctional facilities concerned by this phenomenon of radicalisation. If you have a policy of segregation, the recruiters will avoid getting segregated. They will blend into the masses to recruit better. So the issue is being able to contain, to set apart without putting in isolation. That makes it possible to see the process of becoming radicalised. And that gives us information in order to fight that, to collect information about the networks, for example. It also makes it possible to prevent some people from falling for it. So the thing is not to isolate people but to set them apart. It's not the same. Thank you.
