IPS_Innovative Prison Systems, a partner of the MIRAD project, recently participated in an initiative focused on radicalisation prevention in Central Asia in light of the INTERPOL-supported project LEICA.
EU and Kyrgyz experts gathered to share and discuss best practices and recommendations that can contribute to preventing radicalisation and terrorism in prisons. These include risk screening and assessment, prison security, prison intelligence, staff training, and rehabilitation programmes. The event was held in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, from the 29th of November to the 1st of December 2022. The gathering provided an excellent opportunity to share the project’s goals and activities, particularly regarding practices and tools to prevent violent extremism in prison, training approaches and core concepts of rehabilitation and reintegration.
