About the project:

Within the project task, the team will establish a European network to foster and facilitate knowledge and experience exchanges among law enforcement agencies, NGOs, and their members. In addition, a tool for Frontline Extremism Vulnerability Risk–Structured Evaluation Screening (FEVR-SES) will be developed. This assessment tool will allow LEAs and NGOs staff to assess refugees’ vulnerability to radicalization and ensure the long-term integration of young refugees.

IN2PREV presents mentoring Approach for Refugees’ and Asylum Seekers’ Successful Inclusion programme. An innovative b-learning training programme to prevent and identify vulnerability risk factors to the radicalization of refugees and asylum seekers will be launched.

The project plans on creating a b-learning training course to help refugees and asylum seekers integrate through mentoring. Providing an e-learning Train of Trainers course will help LEAs and NGOs improve their ability to train other professionals.

 Main goals of the IN2PREV project are:

  • Facilitate the integration process of refugees and asylum seekers
  • Foster the cooperation and collaboration among public entities (e.g., law enforcement agents – LEAs), community organisations, refugees and asylum seekers’ representatives;
  • Raise awareness of LEAs and community practitioners to the specific needs and challenges that refugees and asylum seekers face;
  • Develop follow-up and inclusion strategies (appropriate to each national context) to mitigate integration difficulties.
  • Promote the early identification (and prevention) of vulnerability risk factors that potentialise radicalization in refugees and asylum seekers.
  • Establish procedures for tracing potential vulnerabilities (at the cognitive, behavioural, and social levels) to the radicalization process;
  • Ensure a longitudinal and cross-sectoral intervention.

Timeframe: 01.11.2022 – 31.10.2025 (36 months)
