EU projects

  • PRALT – Prevention of juvenile radicalisation
    The project “The prevention of juvenile radicalisation: Promoting the use of alternatives to detention through judicial training” will address the issue of juvenile radicalisation in detention, within and outside the prison system, through the sharing of knowledge and good practices between judicial professionals and actors of several EU Member States (EUMS), especially those drawing on cross-sector collaboration. It is based on the assumption that efforts to promote disengagement from violence and extremism will be more effective if they build on existing structures for crime prevention and rehabilitation.
  • RiskTrack
    Risk Track – Tracking tool based on social networks for the assessment of the risk of radicalization is a project co-financed by the Justice Program of the European Union (2014-2020) of 24 months. It is coordinated by the Autonomous University of Madrid (UAM) and has the Université Lyon 1 Claude Bernard (UCBL), the Parc Sanitari Sant Joan de Deu (PSSJDD) and the Cyprus Neuroscience & Technology Institute (CNTI) as members of the consortium.
  • European Judicial Training Network ( EJTN)
    The European Commission Directorate-General for Justice has entrusted the EJTN, together with its members and partners, with the development of an EU-funded, multi-phased and cross-sector Training Programme on Counter-Terrorism and Radicalisation to Violent Extremism, tailored to the needs of the relevant stakeholders and practitioners across the EU.
  • DARE
    The DARE  (Dialogue about Radicalisation and Equality) project  includes 15 partners in 13 countries – Belgium, Croatia, France, Germany, Greece, Malta, Norway, Poland, Russian Federation, The Netherlands, Tunisia, Turkey and the UK – and will run for four years. Funded under the EU Horizon 2020 Framework Programme, it will investigate young people’s encounters with and agents of radicalisation, how they receive and respond to those calls, and how they make choices about the paths they take.
  • Strengthening
    Funded by the European Commission ISEC programme, the project ‘Strengthening Resilience against Violent Radicalisation (STRESAVIORA)’ has been conducted between January 2013 and January 2015 with a view to developing an early prevention psycho-physical training for (vulnerable) youngsters to strengthen their resilience against radical influences and to raise the awareness of the youngster’s social environment. The project outcome has been the ‘BOUNCE Resilience Tools’.
  • R2pris
    Radicalisation Prevention in Prisons (R2pris) Project seeks to reduce radicalization and extremism inside prisons by enhancing the competences of frontline staff (correctional officers, educational staff and psychologists, social workers) to identify, report and interpret signals of radicalisation and respond appropriately.
  • Prepare
    PREPARE’s general objective is to contribute to prevent radicalisation through disengagement and rehabilitation programmes in release and probation, notably through multi-agency partnerships that include local authorities.
  • Pericle ( questo lo ho trovato io in piu’)
    The overall aim of the proposed project is to develop a comprehensive approach to prevent and counter violent radicalisation and extremism. The PERICLES (Policy recommendation and improved communication tools for law enforcement and security agencies preventing violent radicalisation) project is especially dedicated to transitional processes of radicalisation.
  • Practices
    The PRACTICIES project aims to understand radicalisation in order to better anticipate its occurrences and intervene as early as possible in this negative process. Our research and assessment of the professional practice of practitioners will allow to reduce the risk of violent radicalisation and improve urban security in partner cities. In this sense, PRACTICIES wants to contribute to tackling one of the biggest challenges faced by European cities, that is to empower and engage residents, and particularly the most vulnerable, and thus become more inclusive and diverse cities.
    THE European University of Cyprus has launched the ELMIP – Empowering Learning Models in Prison Programme, co-funded by the European Union Justice Programme, implemented with partners Enoros Consulting Ltd (Cyprus) and Ergoplan AE (Greece), and the Cyprus prison department. The programme aims to provide invaluable training materials to prisoners and prison staff through innovative educational opportunities and specialised training.In particular, it aims to shield young prisoners, develop communication skills, emotional and interpersonal skills, and improve their employability after release and achieve long-term reintegration into society.
  • ENM
  • ERA
    “Enhancing cross-border mutual legal assistance and recognition of decisions in countering terrorism and preventing radicalisation in prisons”. This project, sponsored by the European Union, consists of four seminars, two of which take place in Madrid and Vienna in 2017 and two in Utrecht and Trier in 2018. Each seminar focuses on a different aspect of enhancing cross-border mutual legal assistance and recognition of decisions in countering terrorism and preventing radicalisation in prisons, with the aim being to provide practical training for a broad spectrum of legal professionals and practitioners, ministry officials and officials from judicial training institutions, prison administrations and the probation services in the relevant fields.
  • “European Prison Observatory. Prison de-radicalization strategies, programmes and risk assessment tools in Europe”.
    The project aims will evaluate the strategies and programmes which prevent, deter and counter radicalization in prison, including detention centres. This will identify and analyse good practices regarding new or existing de-radicalization, disengagement and rehabilitation programmes and risk assessment tools. European guidelines will be maintained with the protection of detainees’ rights from pre-detention, rehabilitation and probation. Considerations ensured for differing needs based on gender, youth and non-discrimination and utilizing networks to propose improvements. Research incorporates qualitative and quantitative data analysis on official government documents and with 15 key stakeholders from prison administration and management, prison staff, Imams, chaplains and other religious representatives. Undertaken by the European Prison Observatory which comprises of the applicant and seven partners in Italy, Portugal, Spain, Latvia, Austria, Germany and Greece. A subcontracted charity will undertake research and attend meetings for the UK.
  • Rasmorad p&p RASMORAD
  • TRAin Training (Transfer Radicalisation Approaches in Training
  • RISE
  • REM – REM is a European project co-funded by the EU program “Erasmus +” that involves seven partners in four European countries: Germany, Italy, Romania and Spain.

    Inspired by a project realized within the walls of Dozza’s prison in Bologna (IT) REM aims to prevent violent radicalization and to promote democratic values and fundamental rights. To do so the consortium is creating training modules for migrants that can facilitate dialogue and self-reflection about rights, duties and cultural differences.

    Every partner will plan and realize training modules for migrants in different social contexts, e.g. hosting communities, prisons, language courses and so on.
