Project description

The practice brings representatives together from the police, school and youth welfare councils in a joint workshop aiming to enhance cooperation and information exchange in the context of radicalisation prevention. The workshop focuses on raising awareness of the necessity of cooperation and swift, timely information-sharing in relation to radicalisation.

The working method consists of workshop case studies and discussions.

The three-trainer team typically comprises one trainer representing each of the participating fields: police, youth welfare and schools.

Participants study a number of real-life cases highlighting the importance of cooperation. They also learn more about the other bodies (how they function and why they work as they do) and all participants ensure they have established a means of contact that will facilitate timely and swift sharing of information.

The target audience includes:

  • trainee police officers and police officers from local counterterrorism units;
  • social workers and social educators from the Youth Welfare Council;
  • principals and school social workers;

As of 2018 in Vienna, the workshop also addresses street workers, representatives of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC), representatives of RAN DERAD and representatives of the municipal department 'Integration and Diversity'.
