Community of practice
In most European Union Member States there are no counter-terrorist policies and practices adapted to children. In the few cases where these policies and practices exist, they are specific to each country, which means that promising results are not replicated between Member States. Juvenile justice agencies and practitioners, as well as social actors, have expressed a pressing need for support to help identify, prevent and deal with radicalisation and extreme violence in children and young adults.
This community of practice aims to fuel the discussion on these issues and to promote collaboration between its members to achieve common outcomes among professionals. It facilitates the sharing of new developments, evidence-based best practices and relevant publications.
The website section for this project was funded by the European Union’s Justice Programme (2014-2020). The contents of it are the sole responsibility of the “Strengthening Juvenile Justice Systems in the counter-terrorism context” project partners, and can in no way be taken to reflect the views of the European Commission.
