CEDAR Education against radicalisation

Continuing Education Against Radicalisation



European-level efforts to prevent radicalisation and violent extremism involve the need to train professionals also in the education sector, especially educators such as university professors, juvenile detention centres educators, as well as associations working with vulnerable youngsters. Despite numerous recommendations and laws aimed at characterising and banning the extremist discourse that leads to violence, few specifically European tools have been developed to date. The CEDAR project aims to fill that gap by training and improving the practitioners’ skills in the field of radicalisation and extremism in educational and university settings, by supporting them with the necessary competencies towards risk identification and prevention.



  • Train, within partner universities, a network of trainers who are experts in the prevention of radicalisation and capable of generating a relevant and specialised response in the area of continuing university education;
  • Define a European training curriculum for the prevention of radicalisation for education professionals (teacher training), security professionals (police, intelligence), social intervention and social assistance professionals;
  • Build a multilingual online course platform, allowing universities to create an open hybrid training offering on detection, risks and prevention of radicalisation and extremism.


Expected outcomes

  • Review of the state of the art and good practices;
  • Educational needs analysis and content inventory available online;
  • Creation of training modules;
  • Design of online courses – Implementation of the training platform;
  • Measuring the impact of actions and ethical issues.
