Facilitating co-operation through a Clearing Point

The basis for effective co-operation between mosque associations and police authorities is an understanding of and trust in each other. To promote both of these, , the "Prevention and Co-operation Clearing Point" was set up within the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees at the suggestion of the German Islam Conference’s discussion group on Security and Islamism after its 3rd plenary meeting.

The Clearing Point is a nationwide co-ordination agency, set up to provide an overview of all co-operation projects between security authorities, Muslim organisations and multipliers and to support the implementation of these projects.

The Prevention and Co-operation Clearing Point is intended to

  • upport the setting up of a nationwide network of contacts for security authorities and Muslims,
  • provide experts for discussion events and for information exchange,
  • support training and further training projects sponsored by the security authorities,
  • support information programmes delivered by the security authorities to Muslims, and
  • provide support in drawing up information materials.

Target groups: contacts and experts

In accordance with the mandate from the German Islam Conference’s plenary meeting, the Prevention and Co-operation Clearing Point is aimed at two separate groups of people:

the first group is made up of contacts in the security authorities, Muslim organisations and non-organised Muslims. These groups can approach the Clearing Point if they want to implement a project and are looking for partners, or if they already have experience from projects they have implemented and wish to share this with others.

The second group is made up of experts who would like actively to support the dialogue between the security authorities and Muslims and would like to pass on their knowledge through further training events.

Towards a different way of reporting

The overwhelming image of Islam in the German-language media rarely contributes to the integration of Muslims or to breaking down prejudices or fears in the majority population. The German Islam Conference wishes to change this and has initiated extensive dialogue with Muslims, media professionals, academics and politicians.
