Radicalisation Prevention Competence Development Programme for Justice Professionals (R4JUST)

Context

No EU member state has so far covered the overall need for training the staff in the justice and penal systemi concerning radicalisation prevention. This project aims to contribute to eliminate this shortcoming.

 

Aims

R4JUST aims to prevent and reduce the risk of radicalisation and violent extremism in prisons by exploring a multi-sectoral approach, intending to enhance the competences of prison staff (namely prison governors, as well as frontline and technical staff), probation staff (e.g., probation officers/supervisors, psychologists), as well as judges and prosecutors while fostering criminal and judicial multi-sectoral cooperation and networking on countering and preventing radicalisation.

 

Methodology

Interviews, Survey, Development of Best / Good Practices

R4JUST builds upon and will use a comprehensive radicalisation assessment toolset which has been previously developed and successfully piloted in the scope of the R2PRIS project (Radicalisation Prevention in European Prisons).

R4JUST is expected to develop a survey intended at providing a groundwork for a thoughtful state of the art during, as well as a database of EPs/ESs, a multi-sectoral training comprising four courses directed at prison staff, probation staff, judicial professionals, and trainers, as well as piloting activities.
