PRACTICIES Against radicalisation in cities


Partnership against Radicalisation in Cities



PRACTICIES mobilizes networks of European cities and experts to better understand the human roots of violent radicalisation and to characterize these processes starting by their origins and to build concrete tools and prevention practices. This transnational project relies on the cooperation of experience in the field of urban security in cities and expertise of national structures to fight terrorism (partners from different countries involving Government and law enforcement agencies, municipalities, research institutions and private organizations).



  • To evaluate the existing procedures of registration, identification youth in the process of radicalisation in an urban space;
  • To describe and explain social course of transition to radical action;
  • To provide concrete tools for action.


Expected outcomes

  • Synthesis and European consensus on radicalisation processes encouraging the construction of an etiology of radicalisation processes;
  • Prevention and education tools that will build on the implementation of concrete actions to structure against speech and human alliances against violent radicalisation;
  • Evaluation of reporting procedures, identification, and treatment of people radicalised, by the comparative analysis of the procedures implemented in the enforcement agencies;
  • A breaking speech glossary in Europe;
  • Technological tools to promote the protection of youth and attempts of indoctrination, encouraging characterization of sources and resources of hate speech and radicalisation;
  • Evaluation and innovation in urban policy radicalisation prevention by proposing new experiments, dissemination of good practices and promoting the mapping of skills of local players’ prevention and treatment of radicalisation.
