Offenders’ skills development for radicalisation prevention – INTEGRA meeting Silvia Bernardo May 4, 2018

Offenders’ skills development for radicalisation prevention – INTEGRA meeting

The meeting group – representing partners from France, Portugal, Bulgaria, Italy, The Netherlands, and Greece – met with the purpose to discuss the projects’ outputs’ implementation progress, budget issues, and activities planning.

On the 3rd and 4th of May 2018, the INTEGRA’s Project Steering Committee has had its 2nd meeting, which was held in Lisbon, at IPS_Innovative Prisons Systems office.

INTEGRA is the acronym for “Integrated Community, Probation and Prison Services Radicalisation Prevention Approach”.

This project strives to improve the transition process between prison and/or probation systems and the community for those at risk of radicalisation or who have been radicalised.

It attempts to achieve this outcome by promoting a holistic radicalisation prevention initiative, focusing on offenders’ skills development as well as on the capacity building of front line staff and organisations.

The project foresees the direct participation of 850 people, including practitioners from the countries involved in the partnership, academic researchers, mentors, and trainees.
