We are excited to share a significant milestone achieved by RJ4All in our ongoing efforts to combat violent extremism and radicalisation. With years of dedicated work and extensive experience, RJ4All has been at the forefront of addressing these critical issues through our multi-year capacity-building, research, awareness-raising, and educational programmes. Our initiatives aim to: 

  • Explore the role, potential, and limitations of restorative justice and pilot community-led initiatives for preventing individuals at risk of violent radicalisation, with a special focus on young people. 
  • Increase awareness around alternative, positive approaches to violent radicalisation and extremism using Gavrielides’ preventative model. 
  • Deepen and strengthen the relationship between human rights and violent radicalisation by creating bridges and negotiating solutions for policy-making. 
  • Network and connect researchers, policymakers, practitioners, educationalists, and users in the areas of violent radicalisation, human rights, and restorative justice from across the world. 

Our approach is grounded in Gavrielides’ restorative justice model, a psychosocial intervention designed to enhance resilience and prevent anti-social behaviour. 

Building on this expertise, RJ4All has actively participated in several European projects, including the “Mobilising against extremism through countering and diverting radicalisation of young people (RADEX)” initiative. We are proud to announce that this project has been recognised and featured on the Radicalisation Awareness Network (RAN) website

In response to the escalating threat of violent radicalisation, extremism, and nationalism in Europe, the RADEX project emerged as a vital effort. It focused on prevention, education, and developing tools to empower young people and P/CVE practitioners in the fight against extremism. RADEX highlighted that combating terrorism and violent extremism requires more than surveillance and security; it necessitates comprehensive prevention strategies that deter individuals from embracing violent extremism in the first place. The project’s outcomes underscored the importance of redirecting young people towards non-violent alternatives, fostering a community-centric approach to counter-radicalisation. 

We invite you to visit the RAN website to learn more about RADEX and explore the impactful work being done in the field of counter-radicalisation. RAN is an EU-funded initiative that brings together practitioners from across Europe working on the prevention of radicalisation. RAN provides a platform for exchanging knowledge, best practices, and effective strategies to counter violent extremism and radicalisation at the local, national, and international levels. 

Stay tuned for more updates as we continue our mission to create safer and more resilient communities.
