Collection of inspiring practices


More than 200 inspiring practices are included in the RAN Collection. The Collection is a convincing testimony to the progress that is being made in the field preventing and countering violent extremism (P/CVE). It is continually expanding to include more practices with a view to providing practitioners, policymakers and researchers a valuable source of information and inspiration.

As a practical, evolving and growing tool, the RAN Collection aims to provide the possibility for practitioners, policymakers and researchers to draw inspiration from the practices and find examples adaptable to their local/specific context. It also makes it easier for practitioners to find counterparts to exchange on prevention experiences.

As a work in progress, the RAN Collection is continuously updated and enhanced with new practices from EU/EEA Member States.

Expert review

There has been a lot of creativity among first-line practitioners throughout Europe in their work in the field of P/CVE. They have introduced many inspiring ways of working to prevent radicalisation. Beginning in 2020, practice owners have the opportunity to receive an expert review. The review is conducted by a member of the RAN expert pool. Practices that receive an expert review with a positive outcome will be labelled ‘best practice’.

The aim of the expert review is threefold: to introduce more quality standards for inclusion in the RAN Collection, to raise awareness about the increasing necessity of evaluating P/CVE interventions, tools and methods, and to further support practitioners with the professionalisation of their projects.
