CIDES – Centre for information on destructive subcultures

CIDES works with developing and disseminating effective approaches for combating the formation of destructive subcultures, reducing their recruitment and facilitate in defection.

Our main belief is that problems with destructive groups cannot be fixed by the police alone. That there are a lot of stakeholders in society who need to assume responsibilities and work together, and that we all need to start listening to what the young people, who live where gangs and groups are formed, claim that they need in order to keep out of these groups.

The goal is to obtain feasible and effective solutions to the problem.
