Prevention of juvenile radicalisation Objectives


The focus on the judiciary and judicial staff as the target group, as well as other legal practitioners and actors involved in the justice system, will ensure that the problem of juvenile radicalisation in detention is effectively addressed to stakeholders and decision-makers. This will be achieved through the formation and training of prison and detention centres’ staff, and through the training of judges, judicial professionals and policy-makers on the risks of radicalisation brought up by detention measures and on the positive outcomes of alternatives to detention, disengagement, deradicalisation and preventive approaches, which they will learn to develop, adapt and apply locally through this project.

In summary, this project aims at allowing judges, policymakers and legal practitioners to be trained and exchange views on effective intervention, management and sentencing practices regarding the prevention of radicalisation in detention, as well as the alternatives to detention and the development of effective de-radicalisation programmes for youngsters in EU Member States.
