On the 28th of February 2018, CEP organised an Expert Workshop on Radicalisation and Probation. The workshop was kindly hosted by Maison de Justice in Brussels, Belgium. It was a successful day with a great variety of speakers and 33 attendees from 19 countries. The meeting was organised to share knowledge and experiences about radicalisation in probation. The importance of knowledge sharing was emphasised by CEP President Gerry McNally at the end of the workshop: “Together we can achieve more than alone”. 

The workshop was kicked-off by Annie Devos, CEP Vice-President and Director-General of Maison de Justice. She welcomed all the participants to Brussels and the Expert Workshop on Radicalisation and Probation.

The programme started with a series of presentations held by experts in the field of radicalisation from different countries: Belgium, Sweden, United Kingdom, France, Germany and the Netherlands. The presentations were followed by a World Café. Five groups discussed a topic related to radicalisation, like assessment, offender management, interventions and best practice. These groups were guided by a chair that takes notes. At the end of all the discussions the outcomes were gathered. At the end of the day three projects regarding radicalisation, in which CEP is involved, were also presented.
