Prevent extremism

Promoting democracy, preventing extremism

DEXT stands for "Democracy promotion and cross-phenomenon extremism prevention". In Waldeck-Frankenberg, the focus of the centre's work is on the topics of right-wing extremism and right-wing populism in line with local needs.

The DEXT centre serves as an internal contact point for district and local authority employees. It creates basic knowledge about right-wing extremist and right-wing populist movements in the district in order to derive measures to combat them. The DEXT Waldeck-Frankenberg office works in close coordination with the Network for Tolerance on the strategic development and - where necessary - repositioning of activities to promote democracy at district level. The aim is to identify continuities and discontinuities in radical politics, to build and expand regional resilience to right-wing populist and extreme right-wing movements and to promote social cohesion between majority and minority communities.

The DEXT office in the district of Waldeck-Frankenberg is part of the state programme "Hessen - active for democracy and against extremism".
