The main partners and beneficiaries of the Project are national training institutions from countries most affected by the phenomenon of Radicalisation Prevention. Target groups: judges, prosecutors, prison and probation officers.

The main aim is:

  • General: To improve the criminal justice response in the EU to prevent radicalisation leading to terrorism and violent extremism
  • Specific: To increase capacities and mutual trust of primarily justice practitioners dealing with radicalisation prevention through training, inter-agency and cross-border cooperation

The following results are expected:

  • Development of a new HELP course on Radicalisation Prevention and at least 4 national adaptations
    • Basic module(s) (for all) for consistency and cross-profession
    • Specific module for prosecutors and judges (on prison oversight and on gathering and use of evidence in counter-terrorism cases)
    • Specific module for prisons and probation staff
  • Training of Trainers (ToT) for 12 participants (from 5 EU MS)
  • Two cross-border courses launched for 3 EU MS each (for 180 participants)
  • Three European Seminars (for 180 participants):
    • exchanges on risk assessment tools
    • implementation of de-radicalisation actions
    • best practices - counseling and development of counter narratives
