DERAD is an European Project that aims to prevent the escalation of radicalisation in the prison environment and help prisoners and probationers who are often exposed to Jihadist recruitment or self-radicalisation to overcome the different problems and push factors usually exploited by recruiters, aspects that DERAD project aims to approach.
The project´s objectives include:
- social rehabilitation of these individuals;
- transfer to their home countries;
- public-private partnerships, ensuring mutual recognition to court´s decisions at EU level.
Through a large-scale training programme and a comprehensive online infrastructure this project wants to reach all professionals involved in the integration process of these individuals: judiciary and judicial staff, law enforcement agencies, prison and probation staff, translators, social workers, etc.
Eight European institutions from six different countries will work on this project, which is led by the Italian Ministry of Justice, Department of Penitentiary Administration (Office for Veneto, Friuli Venezia Giulia and Trentino Alto Adige).
The University of Granada and Czech Technical University in Prague, together with the Euro-Arab Foundation, as academic bodies, will create a protocol to facilitate the integration of the European national qualifications systems to a common European Reference Framework in this field.
