  • Quality training and learning opportunities on the use of the ideological and gendered-specific IRS (Individual Radicalisation Screening);
  • Enhanced productivity of disengagement programmes;
  • Catalyse and promote transversal transition programmes for VETOs (violent extremist and terrorist offenders).

Actions undertaken within the MIRAD project will focus mainly on Right-wing and Islamist extremism with a special consideration of gender-specific dimensions.

Main tasks of the project are: the tool development and training to assess the trustworthiness level of non-governmental organisations, the adaptation of the Individual Radicalisation Screening (IRS) including an ideological-focused component, a mixed-method training approach, and the development of interinstitutional collaboration models and protocols towards effective disengagement and successful social reintegration.
