Abstract:
Not being its purpose to establish a security-migration link, the aim of this Study is to analyse both European Union’s action to prevent radicalization and the current starting point by means of an instrument specifically aimed at promoting social inclusion and integration

of third-country nationals and Europeans with a migrant background: the Action plan on Integration and Inclusion 2021-2027. In this document, besides stressing EU’s intervention thought the lens of human rights, the Commission approaches social inclusion and integration from a securitarian perspective; that is, for the first time in the European agenda, as an active element of its action to prevent radicalization processes leading to violent extremism and terrorism. This approach, however, might entail undesired consequences for the effective protection and promotion of the rights of this collective.
