Call for participants: RAN POL meeting – Workshop for in-depth case diagnosis, 16–17 December 2021 (09:30 – 13:00 CET)


This meeting will take place online.

On behalf of the RAN POL chairs, Marzena Kordaçzuk-Wąs and Luc Van Der Taelen, we are asking for your support. We are looking for one (maximum two) police officer(s) for a workshop where the participants will perform three case diagnoses.

Background and aim of this meeting 

In this meeting, we will have an in-depth diagnosis of different real-life cases. The aim of the meeting is to create an overview of insights based on the assessments made by police officers. How do the workshop participants deal with each particular case? What are the different options for handling each case according to the group?

The goal is to create an overview of options and insights based on the best practices and lessons learned provided by the assessments. We answer the question: what can we learn from the cases presented that can improve police work in P/CVE?

We are looking for:

  • One preventative and/or investigating police officer, with experience in P/CVE work, who wants to present a real-life case they worked on in P/CVE (not CT. On some occasions we can have two officers from one country).

Nota bene: we will organise two types of case diagnosis:

  • Social diagnosis, a case for social prevention: a case diagnosis zooming in on the subject: conditions, root causes and the kaleidoscope of push and pull factors in radicalisation. Here, we are looking for a case that illustrates that the police cannot do it alone, and that other actors are needed for social prevention.  

  • Debriefing, zooming in on police interventions 
    • Debriefing a problematic case: The case in this diagnosis focuses on what the police could have done better. What can the police learn from missed opportunities?  
    • Debriefing a case with successful police interventions. In this case we also discuss potential alternative actions suggested by officers from other countries. 


You can apply with an email to Steven Lenos and Ceren Özkan preferably as soon as possible, ultimately before 10 December

Please note that this digital meeting only allows one (maximum two) expert(s) per EU MS to attend.
