Responsibility for running it will be handed over to the Center for Preventing Violent Extremism, where it will only be available to professionals, not relatives. Christer Mattson is the director of the Segerstedt Institute at the University of Gothenburg, and helped author a report about the helpline. He's critical of the decision.
"People who are in the process of radicalising themselves into violent extremism are hard to find. Relatives are able to do things that social workers, teachers or police officers may not be able to do, so it is a very vital group [in this work]" said Mattson.
