IN2PREV aims to broadly respond to the needs of Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) and Local Education Agencies (LEAs) professionals who work with refugees and asylum seekers in European host and transit countries, intending to prevent the latter’s radicalisation by ensuring successful inclusion and integration. Moreover, the project has the goal of addressing the identified needs through innovatively educating, training and capacitating NGOs and LEAs practitioners on the prevention and countering of radicalisation and violent extremism amongst the refugee population, thus aiming to enhance these professionals’ crucial involvement in this field. 


Foster the cooperation and collaboration between public entities (e.g., LEAs), community organisations, and refugees and asylum seekers’ representatives; 

Raise awareness of LEAs and community practitioners to the specific needs and challenges faced by refugees and asylum seekers; 

Establish accompaniment and inclusion strategies (appropriate to each national context) to mitigate the difficulties encountered in the integration process; 

Define procedures that seek to trace potential vulnerabilities (at the cognitive, behavioural, and social levels) to the radicalisation process; 

Enhance competencies of frontline practitioners and community organisations (in order to guarantee the proper support to the individual to mitigate any initially screened vulnerability risk factors) to ensure a longitudinal and cross-sectoral intervention.
