Radicalisation: Risk factors and Prevention – Final conference of the European Project PRACTICIESOver a period of three years, the EU funded PRACTICIES project organised a range of activities to better understand the risk factors and mechanisms of violent radicalisation and to characterise them from the origins to the violent act. It has conducted in-depth, cutting edge qualitative and quantitative studies into risk factors for and trajectories of radicalisation processes, and developed a wide range of prevention tools, including civic education methodologies, media education trainings, a serious game and content detection software. The project gathered more than 25 partners from various European countries (Austria, Belgium, Greece, Italy, Portugal, Spain) as well as Tunisia, all experts in the humanities, political science, information sciences or information technology.
The final conference will be an opportunity to learn about the project’s result, to take part in rich exchanges with leading experts in radicalisation processes and, for the project’s promoters and partners, to disseminate it to the European and international community of stakeholders and professionals in the prevention of violent extremism.
The conference will take place on 25-26 March in Riga (LV).
