To be published soon: Comparative Study of models for the prevention of violent radicalization

Author(s) : CIPC

 

The objective of this study, funded by Public Safety Canada, is to compare various models in terms of prevention of violent radicalization at both local and urban levels, in order to gather specific and practical information regarding the implementation of programmes and initiatives, especially the one linked to challenges, difficulties, as well as intervention management approaches.
To do so, the study was carried out in two phases. During the first one, exploratory talks were held with 23 experts and specialists from 14 countries. Through this phase, we were able to obtain recommendations regarding the category of frontline workers to target as well as countries and cities implementing interesting interventions for the prevention of radicalization. We were also given information to contact workers. Subsequently, the second phase of the study consisted in carrying out interviews of frontline workers, such as social workers, educators, etc. who are involved in the prevention of radicalization. A total of 64 workers from 23 countries in North America, Europe, Africa, Asia and Oceania were interviewed.
The report for this study will present the main dimensions of the interventions for the prevention of radicalization as well as issues faced by frontline workers, in addition to different prevention models that have been identified. The report will be available in French and English.
