JP-COOPS – Cooperation Preventing Radicalisation towards Terrorism

What is the project about?

The JP-COOPS project tackles existing gaps in counter-radicalisation policies and practices through a cross-border cooperation of training providers which strengthen and institutionalize training courses on judicial and police cooperation within a public-private framework, considering up-scalability and principle of conferral. The project will expand the existing networks through exchange of information, training contents, and best practices on countering radicalization and terrorism through the rule of the law by designing and delivering a Toolkit of the Toolkits.
The projects integrates by capitalising from ongoing projects, innovate the segment of the training on radicalisation through an extensive use of jurisdictionalistion procedures based upon the integration of different European legal instruments as basis for future policies and practices.
The project will explore the opportunities offered from recent EU legislation to deescalate tensions and de-potentiate grievances leading to recruitment and terrorism in different social environments. Promote a “Knowledge Partnership” between EJTN, CEPOL, universities, judicial and police schools and Ministries as stated in one of the flagships of the Europe 2020 Strategy. We contribute to the cooperation between CEPOL and the E-Justice Portal as part of a better coordinated effort between LEAs and Judiciary in CVE. Integrate the training activities of the partners countries with the e-Justice Portal as reference tool in the context of judicial training, in line with the provision 2.3 of the EU Security Agenda 2015 and give formal recognition to the acquired training credits through academic bodies (UFC-System) extended to the European Law Institute.
