Aim of the project: With the Preventing Radicalisation through Probation and Release (PREPARE) project Efus wants to develop an innovative multi-agency de-radicalisation, disengagement and rehabilitation programme that includes local authorities in the process. First of all, they will identify the needs in the field. This will help them with drawing up fitting recommendations for the local authorities. Efus wants to strengthen their capacities in working with multi-agency prevention of radicalisation projects and bring together European local authorities that are willing to address radicalisation through release and probation.
