Education for radicalisation prevention

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 for risk identification and prevention.
