The European projects MINDb4ACT, J-SAFE and JPCOOPS started to recruit professionals from 26 European Countries to participate in the courses on preventing radicalization. Travel and accommodations will be covered by the project.
The idea for this initiative was born after the experience with more than 3.000 European professionals who joined the DERAD and TRAINING AID projects (projects co-funded by the DG Justice and the DG Home Affairs of the European Commission).
During 2017 and 2018 four pilot trainings were organized in Italy, Germany, Spain, Romania and Latvia with more than fifty experts coming in from 26 European countries in order to offer a training course on Preventing Radicalization that was as close as possible to the real needs of prison and probation officers, law enforcement agencies and judicial staff.
This effort brought to DERAD the satisfaction of being recognized as a best practice by the Council of Europe in September 2018.
J-SAFE, MINDb4ACT and JPCOOPS will now carry the torch and expand the training offer with 7 brand new modules.
