Led by European Form for Urban Security, partnered with (among others) CEP and co-funded by the European Union, the project “Local Institutions Against Extremism II” (LIAISE 2) seeks to strengthen the capacities of local and regional European authorities to prevent and tackle the issue of radicalisation leading to violent extremism.
LIAISE 2 gathers European cities and regions and develops cooperation throughout Europe within a dedicated network. This approach is in line with the alliance of European cities against violent extremism that was initiated jointly by Efus and the Congress of Local and Regional Authorities of the Council of Europe.
Elizabeth Johnston, Executive Director of the European Forum for Urban Security: “through the LIAISE 2 project, we want to strengthen the capacities of local and regional European authorities to prevent and tackle the issue of radicalisation leading to violent extremism. One of the themes to be addressed is their role in preventing radicalisation in prison and during probation. The partnership with probation organisations, such as the CEP, will facilitate the training of locally elected officials and their teams on this issue and provide support to the cities in their implementation of prevention actions.”
