From February 20th to the 22nd, the IJJO and the Bremen Ministry of Justice and Constitution co-hosted the first study-visit of the IIJO led project ‘PRALT – The prevention of juvenile radicalisation’ in Berlin.
This study-visit was an opportunity for all partners of the project to hear about good German practices in terms of primary, secondary and tertiary prevention of juvenile radicalisation, and about existing programmes of disengagement and rehabilitation in detention.
Presentations were followed by questions and discussions surrounding the practices and programmes presented, as well as regarding the PRALT Training Manual, currently in development, and the tasks of the partners in the project. On the last day, a visit of the Tegel prison was organised for all partners to have a better understanding of the context and facilities in which the presented programmes of disengagement and rehabilitation in detention take place.
The study-visit was very successful and fruitful in terms of content and knowledge-sharing, and will have a very positive impact on the next steps of the project.
The second study-visit will be held in the Netherlands on March 27th-29th, 2017, and will be co-hosted by the IJJO and Stichting 180.
