One focus of our international work is networking with other organizations and institutions to target radicalisation prevention and deradicalisation. We rely on a combination of established and far-reaching network structures and smaller networks in which innovative forms of exchange of ideas and vision are developed. Violence Prevention Network is a founding member of the Radicalisation Awareness Network (RAN), affiliated to the European Commission. In addition, we are a member of the Steering Committee and Co-Chair of the working group “EXIT”. The main focus here is the transfer of knowledge and expertise to countries that have special needs. We establish networks and create opportunities for networking between various key players and decision-makers.
More about RAN.
The European Practice EXchange (EPEX) organises, in an explicitly informal setting, an exchange of ideas exclusively with and by practitioners working directly with extremists and at-risk youth. Job shadowing visits provide specific insights into the different workings of the member organisations. Resulting, transnational topics from the practical perspective are documented in a participatory writing process by all participants in a concluding publication.
