This research aims to describe deradicalization processes held among society. It also aims to give insight into the deradicalization model where the society, including former terrorism inmates, are actively involved. Former terrorism inmates have a specific challenge in their integration back to the society due to their exposure to radical ideologies or terrorist acts. Their belief of the radical ideology becomes an additional barrier to the inmate fostering process and reintegration to the society. Yayasan Lingkar Perdamaian (Peace Circle Foundation) is a social movement established by former terrorism inmates to ease their reintegration to the society. Community involvement as a deradicalization component is a crucial component, although the active and voluntary involvement of society is a new phenomenon. This research utilizes qualitative descriptive phenomenology. The data compilation will be done through interview, observation, and literature study in snowball method. The result of the research will give description on the society-based deradicalization and model that can be applied in a bigger environment.
