Objective: This study aims to assess the effectiveness of the Forum Kewaspadaan Dini Masyarakat (FKDM) as a strategic instrument for countering radicalism and extremism in North Purwokerto District, Banyumas Regency, Indonesia.
Methods: Utilizing a qualitative research approach, the study engaged in thorough observations and active involvement with various stakeholders. Data were analyzed through thematic analysis, supported by in-depth interviews and Focus Group Discussions (FGDs).
Findings: The study found that FKDM demonstrates a strong commitment to mitigating the risks associated with radicalism and extremism. However, it faces key challenges, including insufficient budget allocations and difficulties in coordinating among multiple agencies.
Conclusions: The study concludes that while FKDM shows promise as a tool for countering radicalism and extremism, successful implementation requires sufficient resource allocation and effective inter-agency collaboration. The findings contribute to the limited body of research on the operational efficiency of FKDM in specific regional settings and offer insights for policy-making.
