Default France Tests “Tough Love” De-radicalisation Approach

Thanks to ICSR @ Kings. So the French have bitten the "Prevent" "bullet", setting up centres to de-radicalize and a senior official stated:
...they are not intended for people returning from Syria/Iraq, but for “weak-willed volunteers”, largely youngsters already monitored as vulnerable to radicalisation.

...the centres will first deconstruct and counter jihadism’s ideological discourse, a task that will be “largely outsourced” to specialized associations which “are themselves still struggling a little, as has to be admitted”. Once they have successfully countered the ideology, they will enter a “therapeutic phase” that deals with any grave problems they have, including dropping-out of school/work, and those suffering from mental illness will be referred to a psychiatric clinic.....those who do not comply will face the wrath of the state.
