About RAN Practitioners

The RAN Practitioners is a network of frontline practitioners who work daily with both those vulnerable to radicalisation and those who have already been radicalised.

Topics and Working Groups

RAN Practitioners is structured around nine thematic Working Groups, driven by a Steering Committee (SC) chaired by the European Commission.


The RAN YOUNG Platform is open to the next generation of influential leaders, thinkers and doers in the field of prevention and countering of violent extremism (P/CVE).


The RAN Practitioners papers consolidate RAN’s Practitioners expertise and knowledge on radicalisation and violent extremism into an accessible format, providing up-to-date information.
