W.P. 2.2: Indicators of recognition and evaluation from the radicalisation leading to violent extremism

The methodological framework for identification and risk assessment of radicalisation leading to violent extremism will be based on the creation of indicators for the early recognition of radicalisation signs, focusing on two main categories: a) returnees and b) prisons and reception centers for immigrants and refugees. The indicators will be based on external / visible signs of radicalisation, answering the question “what should a law enforcement officer observe in a person’s behavior and how should he/she assess this observation?”. To prepare the methodological framework and the indicators, best practices from previous EU-funded research projects will be used, as well as the Radicalisation Awareness Network’s (RAN) best collection of practices.
