October 11, 2023

At the 23rd Annual Conference of the European Society of Criminology, IPS_Innovative Prison Systems, the Center for the Study of Democracy and the Euro-Arab Foundation for Higher Studies, partners of the MIRAD project, had the opportunity to present MIRAD’s approach to enhance the efficiency of radicalisation disengagement and reintegration programmes. The event was held in Florence, Italy, from the 6th to the 9th of September 2023.

The conference provided an excellent opportunity to share the project’s goals and activities, particularly the adaptation of the Individual Radicalisation Screening (IRS) tool, the preliminary results from the training provided to prison, probation and community staff, as well as the design and promote the adoption cross-sectoral and interinstitutional collaboration models and protocols. The project – which is reaching its end – is currently focused on the piloting and finetuning of evidence-based radicalisation assessment VR-based training scenarios, as well as on disseminating the MIRAD outcomes and products.

This project is co-funded by the European Commission’s Internal Security Fund – Police (ISFP) (GA no. 101035878)
