My proposal suggests the following: To bring back potential terrorists or terror group candidates back to the right track , we can use the same psychology , or as many would call it brain wash , used on them by their group leaders to bring them on the path of terrorism. But The psychology should not be implemented in the way used on them prior , instead it should be used in a more morally correct manner. For example , telling them how they would be actually benefit from the society if they do the right things in aspects of humanity and telling them that the modern world isn’t religious, cultural , racial or gender biased & that if anyone by any chance practices bias , how the law will treat them, etc. This should be done for at least one and a half year and should be done under environments of least tension and the person shouldn’t feel like being interrogated or being forcefully taught about humanity. After this one and a half year , they should be evaluated and left on their own . Here a particular government or political society can constantly gather intel on the person by not affecting his or her’s personal rights in any manner what so ever. In any case If this doesn’t work and the person has made contacts with their previous groups , then he or she should be made to go through the process again . Also another very important aspect would be to not practice this technique on individual candidates but as a group. Thank you very much and apologies for using any terms that I shouldn’t have as it wasn’t intentional. Sagar.

In order to answer the question about how to stop terrorists, we have to ask ourselves if everyone around us is respected and treated equally? Because people usually get the craziest ideas when they want something but they can't get it because their type of people is on a lower level then everyone else's. Everyone can become a terrorist and all terrorists have a reason to be who they are. In order to prevent them, i think equality and respect between everyone can help. Education too. But we come across these atracks every day so, in order to stop them we should scare them in some way. For example in every shops and institutions, events, public transports, schools etc, there should be put security checks and items that can harm danger should be prohibited. Also add a new law that everyone should bring a personal card or passport that shows the identity of the person in bigger public institutions. If people don't have something to indentify themselves let them pay taxes if they want to get in. Because no terrorist wants others to know who he/she is, so they will be scared to even enter the institution or whatever building there is. I think that you shouldn't try to stop an attack, you should prevent it and save lots of innocents. That's why I think that in first place security checks should be placed on everywhere. Because trying to stop an attack doesn't save anyone. Other things should be taken on time. Something a little less realisic that i have in my mind is ruining all weapons and destroying everything that can produce dangerous items. Weapons should only produce institucions like police stations, armys etc. Thank you for giving me an opportunity to share my ideas. This is just my perspective because there are already so many terrorist and stopping them is almost impossible, but scaring people to become ones isn't.

The attacks from the last years were really awful. So many lost lives. We must appriaciate life and be aware that people need to be included in the society and adapted to it. I propose that the European Union makes series of events and projects every year bringing people from different cultural backgrounds together and not only discussing, but uniting them via art - music, painting,dances, performances, etc. Art has uniting power. According to me these projects should be introduced at schools, because the children can build valuable relationships from ealy age. Moreover, these projects should be done mostly in schools, where children from minorities or of migrant parents study. All the Europeans deserve to live peacefully and safe. In order to achieve this, EU should do campaigns promoting non-discrimination. inclusion and active participation of people from every culture in a particular country in the life of the place they live.

In order to have a better cooperation between European countries in this fight and to ensure the safety of europeans, I think we should work on a few but important topics. First : the impunity of authors of hateful/radical comments online. The fact that almost everything can be said without any control and leaving a permanent mark in the net is alarming. Internet is an undeniable way of radicalisation, whether it is hate, or religion. It's a hole new world, that shouldn't be standing impunity. Second : Sharing the intelligence. How is it possible that we have a better cooperation of europeans intelligence agencies when it comes to fiscal fraud than when it's about protecting lives ! We can't be honestly satisfied with the current way of dealing with dark networks spreading in Europe, whether it's gun trafic, prostitution, drugs or radical cells. Third : Educate ! Develop children (but also adults) critical minds, and allowing them to assess by themselves the truthfulness of an information. Also, in the same way, educate to differences and acceptance of others. We have the chance to live in a world and continent composed by so many different countries, and within those countries so many different communities. Accepting is the first step to a peaceful society.

To add to my previous proposal I would like to add that more information about how these terrorist radicalise people is needed to warn people of their brainwashing techniques then they will recognise it and will be able to prevent themselves getting caught up into it.

I propose a number of ways to tackle the problem of terrorism (both ISIS and other kinds of terrorism and hatred being pushed around). Those proposals are: 1. Use the internet to track down terrorists and hate groups and shut them down so they cannot operate or spread their agenda therefore protecting people from their disturbing way of thinking and acts. 2. Again, using the internet we can track down terrorists and bring them into custody by tracing their social media accounts because nowadays they have social media accounts and are practically pushing it in our faces believing their are invincible, let's show them that we aren't. 3. Once a person/persons come up on the radar as "terrorist suspects" bring them in for questioning and holding them indefinitely because as previous proven the "terror suspects" almost always follow through with what they have been accused of. 4. Integrate all into our society and take extra measure to make it happen so no one feels isolated and bullied and as though they do not belong because these are the reasons which make people angry and upset and more vulnerable to radicalisation. 5. More should be done to make hate-speech a punishable crime. It is no longer enough just to set a society standard. It must become a punishable crime. 6. Ensure that Europe becomes a more secular continent.

The problem with radicalisation is that these people feel gave up by the State and the society. There is two way to prevent it : First : politics have to devote a part of their political programs to these people (Suburbs, residential district, etc) Then : it must be a European school plan for the promotion of human's right since primary school.
