It will take more than boot camps to tackle terrorism

French government officials have announced that France’s first official de-radicalisation boot camp will open at the end of September. Officially known as the Centre for Prevention, Integration and Citizenship, it will be the first of 12 regional de-radicalisation centres, and is to be housed in the 18th-century château de Pontourny in central France. Catering for 25 radicalised young people aged between 18 and 30, the centre will attempt to stop them from being enticed into joining a jihadist group and being groomed to undertake a terrorist attack.
