RAN Prison & Probation is the working group on programs meant to prevent radicalisation in prison and during probation.
In prison and probation programs radicalisation and deradicalisation meet. Sentenced radicals can either be determined to be faithful to their ideology, consider quitting their radical activities or want to withdraw from a radicalised group. Also, there is the risk of other prisoners being recruited and radicalised during their stay in prison, given particular conditions of such confinement.
The aim of RAN P&P is to gather practitioners working within prison or probation programs to exchange experience and interesting practices between the various existing programs, specifically on:
RAN Prison and Probation taking stock of lessons learned
RAN P&P is working towards a Working Group paper in which the knowledge, insights, lessons learned and recommendations up until now will be presented. On the 29th of April, a small group of RAN P&P participants came together in Amsterdam to discuss the objective, target group and main content of the paper. From the perspective of the individuals’ steps through the judicial system , topics included will cover: identification of extremism, risk and responsivity assessment, training, risk management, deradicalisation and disengagement interventions, prerequisites for a healthy prison and probation environment, and reintegration into society.
