Type of Organisation: Governmental institution

Project description

Belgium’s Federal agency for the reception of asylum seekers (Fedasil) provides training for reception centres and support services staff.

The training aims to:

  • address staff questions on radicalisation, e.g. What is radicalisation? What does the process of radicalisation entail?
  • train staff to prevent, identify and deal with radicalisation in reception centres;
  • ensure the reporting of radicalisation to competent authorities.

After the training, staff members are able to:

  • identify signs of radicalisation and prevent radicalisation;
  • react appropriately to radicalisation in reception centres;
  • know when and how to report radicalisation in reception centres.

Face-to-face training until the beginning of 2020 and since then (due to the COVID-19 pandemic) e-training via webinars.

Deliverables

Training modules (four PowerPoint presentations) sent to each participant ahead of the training.
