The prevention of radicalisation is a cornerstone of the European Union’s counterterrorism efforts. Although violent radicalisation is not a new phenomenon, recent terrorist attacks on European soil have shown both the alarming speed and the scale at which some EU citizens have become radicalised.
In response, the Commission has activated a broad range of policy areas and tools to address the different root causes of radicalisation while strengthening more broadly our resilience against radicalisation, including in areas such as education, youth, social inclusion, integration, prisons, etc.
In line with the conclusions of the High-level Commission Expert Group on Radicalisation, the present call aims to support projects in the area of community engagement, the multi-agency approach required to tackle radicalisation, the local dimension and providing support to children and young people who are at risk, with €5 million from the Union’s Budget (ISF-Police – Union Actions).
As of today, project proposals can be submitted through the EU Participants Portal. The deadline for submission of proposals is 19 March 2019 at 17:00 (Brussels time).
