R2PRIS Radicalisation Prevention in Prisons

This project addresses the phenomena of radicalisation and extremism inside prisons, by enhancing the competences of frontline staff (correctional officers, educational staff and psychologists, social workers) to identify, report and interpret signals of radicalisation and respond appropriately. Bringing together international experts in the field of radicalisation and national prison administrations, it aims to provide an innovative training programme for prison staff on how to recognise and prevent the process of radicalisation.
