Project description

The ORT training of trains all correctional staff in awareness of violent radicalisation.

Initial sessions are intended as a refresher for basic knowledge on radicalisation, mental manipulation and procedural points of reference regarding tracking and description. More comprehensive knowledge is available to staff working in specialised units via continuous training.

Training involves lectures by multidisciplinary experts, PowerPoint presentations and a pedagogical video. It also covers theoretical content on radicalisation and pedagogy courses.

The video was designed by the L'école nationale d'administration pénitentiaire (ENAP) communications unit, with the help of internal staff and external experts.

Experts are chosen according to their knowledge of the subject (university recognition, publication of their practice on inmate management). The ministry has not officially decided on an expert list, but calls upon experts who work with national institutions related to this area.

Target Audience

Correctional intelligence officers and trainers, gathered in two groups.

Deliverables

68 trainers & correctional intelligence officers were trained (2016). Currently, no training is foreseen for 2017.
