The general objective of the Community Engagement Against Radicalisation project [CEAR] is, primarily, to systematize a practical model of community and civic engagement that can enhance civil society’s skills and capacity to prevent and counter radicalisation (PVE/CVE) by developing digital toolkits to disseminate in the local communities. Secondly, to develop support structures offering to all relevant local actors tailored trainings and consultancy services to help them to implement specific initiatives on PVE/CVE.

  • Test and develop an evidence-based methodology of community engagement aiming at preventing and countering radicalisation into 3 digital toolkits focusing on three types of communities: (1) youth organisations, (2) organisations of families of radicalised people and (3) Muslim communities.
  • Implement the evidence-based methodology by supporting 54 local actors through tailored trainings, in order to teach them on how to empirically apply the toolkits in their own communities.
  • Develop a support consultancy service, in order to help 22 youth organisations, 14 organisations of family of radicalised people and 18 Muslim communities in implementing 54 PVE/CVE initiatives.
