Developing a European framework for disengagement and reintegration of extremist offenders and radicalised individuals in prison, including returning foreign terrorist fighters and their families
What It Is About
Preventing terror attacks depends on the successful disengagement and reintegration of terrorist and extremist offenders. This can only be achieved through a multi-agency and multi-disciplinary framework with evidence-based, effective practices, cooperation among stakeholders, a solid risk assessment and continuity of care from day one.
EUTEx establishes such a framework by building on European knowledge, skills and products and taking them further by summoning the best expertise in relevant fields. Through innovative training methods, EUTEx will roll out this framework Europe-wide.
“Let everything happen to you: beauty and terror. Just keep going. No feeling is final.”
Rainer Maria Rilke
The Partner Consortium
What You Need to Know
EUTEx involves partners from 9 countries, including countries with the highest incidence of terrorism and extremism, countries with the highest numbers of terrorist and extremist offenders in prison and countries where terrorist incidents involved recidivists. The partner organisations specialise in radicalization, risk assessment, disengagement, reintegration as well as work with women, children and communities. The project consortium includes public and semi-public administrations.
What We Learned Along the Way
Sharing with you our main insights from the project is one of our core priorities. Find out ourlessons learned which we gathered over several months of project implementation and profit from them in your daily work or in another research project you might be engaged in.
We started EUTEx with the mission to dive deeper into the topics of disengagement and reintegration of extremists and terrorists in prisons. By means of our blog, we want to share with you our insights on a broader scale. Take some time to explore the blog and feel free to reach out if you want to contribute.
