Gathering networks of cities’ organisations and experts to better understand, prevent and address violent radicalisation

PRACTICIES mobilises networks of European cities and experts to better understand the human roots of violent radicalisation and to characterise these processes starting by their origins and to build concrete tools and prevention practices.

This transnational project relies on the cooperation of experience in the field of urban security in cities and expertise of national structures to fight terrorism (partners from different countries involving Government and law enforcement agencies, municipalities, research institutions and private organisations).
