“In the fight against radicalization and violent extremism, two lessons from the 2013 study The Hague Approach:  Six Principles for Achieving Sustainable Peace in Post-Conflict Situations are quite fitting. The first is that prevention matters. The second is that we have to foster a rule of law culture. If we want to counter terrorism and extremism, it would be wise to take these lessons into account.”
