The Radicalisation Awareness Network is an umbrella network connecting people involved in preventing radicalisation and violent extremism throughout Europe. Within RAN, first-line practitioners from different European countries can meet others in their area of expertise to exchange ideas, knowledge and experiences on countering radicalisation and violent extremism.
Who is concerned?
RAN connects first-line practitioners, field experts, social workers, teachers, NGOs, civil society organisations, victims' groups, local authorities, law enforcement, academics and others.
How does it work?
The consortium dealing with RAN, financed by the European Commission, takes care of logistics, technical and administrative support.
RAN is structured around thematic working groups, driven by a Steering Committee (SC) chaired by the Commission. The SC includes the leaders of the working groups.
