The Global Counterterrorism Forum (GCTF)

The Global Counterterrorism Forum (GCTF)

GCTF is an international forum of 29 countries and the European Union with an overarching mission of reducing the vulnerability of people worldwide to terrorism by preventing, combating, and prosecuting terrorism.

Our forum brings together experts and practitioners from countries and regions around the world to share experiences and expertise, and develop tools and strategies on how to counter the evolving terrorist threat. Launched in 2011, the GCTF is an informal, a-political, multilateral counterterrorism (CT) platform that has strengthened the international architecture for addressing 21st century terrorism. Central to the Forum’s overarching mission is the promotion of a strategic, long-term approach to counter terrorism and the violent extremist ideologies that underpin it. The GCTF develops Good Practices and tools for policy-makers and practitioners to strengthen CT civilian capabilities, national strategies, action plans and training modules. It provides a forum for national CT officials and practitioners to meet with their counterparts from different regions to share experiences, expertise, strategies, tools, capacity needs, and capacity-building programs.

One of the important goals of the Forum is to support and catalyze implementation of the United Nations (UN) Global Counter-Terrorism Strategy, reviewed in June 2016, and the UN CT Framework more broadly, including for instance the UN Secretary-General’s Plan of Action to Prevent Violent Extremism presented to the UN General Assembly in January 2016. In pursuance of this goal, the GCTF works closely with UN bodies.

Pilot projects on ways to prevent radicalisation - Federal programme “Live democracy!”

Pilot projects on ways to prevent radicalisation - Federal programme “Live democracy!”

A series of pilot projects supported within the federal programme "Live Democracy!" is looking at ways to prevent radicalisation processes in the areas of right-wing extremism, ultranationalism, latently violent Islamism, salafist phenomena and instrumentalisations of Islam, and violently based, anti-democratic forms of left-wing militancy.

The projects are based in social settings that are conflict hotspots and develop conflict management strategies with the aim of identifying constructive, democratic ways of addressing problems and conflicts. In line with social prevalence patterns, the pilot projects seek to trial heterogeneous accesses, different social settings-based approaches as well as a variety of de-escalation and distancing strategies in respect of the above phenomena and the various manifestations, interactions and root causes of radicalisation processes in young people.

The projects include, for instance, the testing of measures to prevent radicalisation online and through social media and the discussion of online services with radical political contents, the piloting of peer-based distancing strategies, the further development of programmes for working with the parents of vulnerable young people or coaching politically or religiously motivated violent juvenile offenders.

The dropout programme of the Bundesamt für Verfassungsschutz (BfV) is a contribution of the Federal Ministry of the Interior to the Federal Government's action catalogue against right-wing extremism, xenophobia and violence.

The dropout programme was launched by BfV in 2001 to help individuals to leave the right-wing extremist scene. It is designed to motivate in particular young people to opt out of the right-wing extremist milieu and to strengthen their determination.

The BfV wants to address people who have come under the sphere of influence of right-wing extremist groups and who want to get out, but are not able to do so on their own.

The Joint Terrorism Response Center / Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution

Combating terrorism through the cooperation of different intelligence and police actors - supplemented by flanking measures in the field of aliens law as well as a long-term effective coordination of preventive and repressive needs (holistic approach).

The strengthening of inter-agency cooperation and the intensification of cooperation with representatives of law enforcement also create a culture of trust which is indispensable for the early identification and defense of dangers.

A key element of the success of the GTAZ is the cooperation between intelligence and police institutions and actors. A prerequisite for their co-operation under one roof was the establishment of two separate pillars, namely in the form of the intelligence services and the police information and analysis center (NIAS and PIAS).

EDUCATE AGAINST HATE – website project of the Department for Education and the Home Office.

EDUCATE AGAINST HATE – website project of the Department for Education and the Home Office.

The purpose of EDUCATE AGAINST HATE website is to provide practical advice, support and resources to protect children from extremism and radicalisation.

Anyone can be vulnerable to extremism and radicalisation, but children are particularly at risk. As they grow and become more independent, it is not unusual for them to take risks, explore new things and push boundaries. Teenage years are often a time when young people will be searching for answers to questions about identity, faith and belonging, as well as looking for adventure and excitement. Extremist groups know young people are vulnerable and may claim to offer them answers, identity and a strong social network, and using the internet and social media to spread their ideology.

EDUCATE AGAINST HATE website has been developed by the Department for Education and the Home Office.

Prevent strategy – Home Office of HM Government

Prevent strategy – Home Office of HM Government

Guidance for specified authorities in England and Wales on the duty in the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015 to have due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism. The Prevent strategy, published by the Government in

2011, is part of our overall counter-terrorism strategy, CONTEST. The aim of the Prevent strategy is to reduce the threat to the UK from terrorism by stopping people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism. In the Act this has simply been expressed as the need to “prevent people from being drawn into terrorism”.
The 2011 Prevent strategy has three specific strategic objectives:

  • respond to the ideological challenge of terrorism and the threat we face from those who promote it;
  • prevent people from being drawn into terrorism and ensure that they are given appropriate advice and support; and
  • work with sectors and institutions where there are risks of radicalisation that we need to address.

Terrorist groups often draw on extremist ideology, developed by extremist organisations. Some people who join terrorist groups have previously been members of extremist organisations and have been radicalised by them. The Government has defined extremism in the Prevent strategy as: “vocal or active opposition to fundamental British values, including democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of different faiths and beliefs. We also include in our definition of extremism calls for the death of members of our armed forces”.

Royal United Services Institute (RUSI)

Royal United Services Institute (RUSI)

The Royal United Services Institute (RUSI) is an independent think tank engaged in cutting edge defence and security research. A unique institution, founded in 1831 by the Duke of Wellington, RUSI embodies nearly two centuries of forward thinking, free discussion and careful reflection on defence and security matters.

RUSI has significant international expertise in countering violent extremism (CVE) – researching radicalisation, implementing CVE programmes, and understanding what works and what doesn’t.

Threats from terrorism and violent extremism are a top priority for governments and multilateral bodies such as the UN and the EU. There is a growing recognition that counter-terrorism, with its dependence on military, law enforcement and intelligence responses, cannot manage the problem alone. CVE has emerged as a field of theory and practice that seeks to complement counter-terrorism with non-coercive measures, particularly using preventative approaches which seek to address the drivers of terrorism and violent extremism.

The Institute’s expertise in countering violent extremism spans research, policy analysis, programme implementation, and training and education. RUSI’s CVE work reaches across the world, with particular emphasis on the UK and Europe, the Middle East, East Africa, and Central Asia.

Prevent, Preempt and Protect - New Swedish strategy against terrorism by Minister for Home Affairs

Prevent, Preempt and Protect - New Swedish strategy against terrorism by Minister for Home Affairs

Friday, 28 August 2015, Minister for Home Affairs Anders Ygeman, presented the Swedish strategy against terrorism. The strategy was delivered to the Riksdag as an official Government Communication. Here are the main contents of the Communication.

Terrorism threatens international peace and security, national security and our fundamental rights and freedoms. Every year, numerous terrorist attacks are carried out around the world. Recent years have seen a sharp increase in problems related to foreign terrorist fighters and there is presently no indication that this trend will abate.

The Government has now drawn up a new national counter-terrorism strategy that will form the basis of Sweden’s long-term work in this area, both nationally and internationally. The aim is to create a clear structure for the work needed to combat terrorist crime. The strategy emphasises the importance of cooperation and clear follow-up of the work done.

The goal of all counter-terrorism activities is to keep terrorist attacks from being carried out. This work is divided into three areas – Prevent, Preempt and Protect. Particular focus is given to the area Prevent. Measures in this area are intended to counteract radicalisation and recruit-ment to extremist and terrorist groups, and to influence the intent of individuals to commit or support terrorist crime. In this way, the recruit-ment base for terrorism can be reduced. The Preempt area deals with counteracting and reducing the capabilities and opportunities to commit terrorist attacks, while Protect deals with creating and maintaining protection for individuals and reducing society’s vulnerability to terrorist attacks. If a terrorist attack is nevertheless carried out, society must also be able to manage the resulting consequences. One important premise for the Government is that fundamental rights and freedoms and the principles of the rule of law must be ensured in all actions to combat terrorism.

While migrants are fundamental players in a globalized world, their institutional treatment of migrations continues to be within the framework of current state spaces. The administrative actions usually are elaborated denying to the immigrant his character of political and social subject.

Ministry of Foreign Affairs

Slovenia condemns in the strictest terms terrorism in any form. There is not and cannot be any justification for terrorism. The interdependence of members of the international community and the indivisibility of international security have never been so pronounced as at the present time of openness and globalisation. Openness and transparency can potentially have negative effects, i.e. they may facilitate terrorism and international organised crime. This means that the widespread involvement of democratic states in counter-terrorism activities is required.

Respect for values, such as democracy, human rights and the rule of law, constitutes the most effective long-term measure against terrorism. Enhanced security should not affect the generally accepted standards for the protection of human rights and fundamental freedoms.

Slovenia feels solidarity with all countries that have been victims of terrorist attacks, and regrets that the international community still has not formulated a unified position on terrorism. Slovenia therefore welcomes all initiatives and efforts to overcome this deadlock.

In the fight against terrorism, action should be taken on two levels: within international organisations at the global and regional levels, and through appropriate legislation and its effective implementation at the national level. The fight against terrorism includes close coordination of international and national measures (political, financial, legislative, police, military, administrative, etc.).

Slovenia furthermore believes that the prevention of radicalism, extremism and terrorist recruitment is one of the most important areas of the preventive fight against terrorism; however, in this process, regional specificities should be taken into account.

Slovenia is an active supporter of counter-terrorism initiatives and measures in international forums. Its support for and implementation of measures adopted by the UN, the EU, NATO, the OSCE, and the CoE place Slovenia firmly and unambiguously in the antiterrorist camp. The most important documents in this field include UN Security Council Resolution No. 1373 (2001), the UN Global Counter-Terrorism Strategy and the European Union Counter-Terrorism Strategy.

Slovenia is a State Party to universal conventions and protocols of the United Nations against terrorism; on 14 September 2005, it was one of the first countries to sign the last, thirteenth International Convention for the Suppression of Acts of Nuclear Terrorism. Its ratification was planned for 2008, as the relevant articles of the Criminal Code have to be amended.

On 12 October 2001, the National Assembly of the Republic of Slovenia adopted the Declaration on the Common Fight against Terrorism whereby Slovenia has joined the international community’s endeavours to unite in the fight against terrorism, and called for the implementation of concrete counter-terrorism measures. The relevant decisions adopted by the Government of the Republic of Slovenia require that individual ministries engage in specific activities for the fight against terrorism.

Slovenia is a signatory of many bilateral and multilateral agreements and/or conventions on the fight against terrorism. To fulfil obligations arising from these legally binding agreements, Slovenia has been implementing legislative and practical measures. As a member of the UN and other international organisations, Slovenia is obliged, in accordance with responsibilities deriving from its membership, to adopt or lift restrictive measures against countries, territorial entities, movements, international organisations and persons, in the context of the implementation of UN or other sanctions binding on the Republic of Slovenia, or if countermeasures are required in accordance with international law.

Slovenian Criminal Police

Slovenian Criminal Police

The Criminal Police are a specialised division for fighting crime. They are headed by the Criminal Police Directorate which with the support of its sections manages, coordinates, monitors, analyses and evaluates situations in the area of criminal offences. In cooperation with judicial and other State bodies and foreign competent authorities, it ensures effective and lawful implementation of tasks in the fight against various areas of crime.

The criminal police cooperate with uniformed police officers in uncovering criminal offences and perpetrators. These can, due to their ongoing presence, immediately take action and solve less serious criminal offences. Severe forms of crime, which require special investigative knowledge and technical equipment, are handled by criminal investigators. Criminal investigators do not wear uniforms and in special situations wear anoraks with the inscription "POLICE".

Due to their specialised work and knowledge of local problems, local crime investigation groups also operate within individual police stations, especially in urban areas. To ensure control of crime in more risky districts, mobile crime units have also been organised at police directorates.

Crime is not hindered by national borders or ethnical differences. In the last decade, with the dissolution of the eastern bloc, crime pushed its way across the iron curtain to the West. This especially applies to organised crime, weapons and illicit drug trafficking and money laundering. Slovenia is also more frequently faced with such crimes, thus it comes as no surprise that the fight against organised associations involved in international criminal acts is a priority task of the criminal police.

The criminal police endeavour not only to keep up with criminal offenders, but also to remain a step ahead of them, therefore they constantly introduce contemporary investigative methods and techniques, suitably train and equip experts for the most serious forms of criminal offences, improve the quality provision of evidence on criminal offences, improve the use of special methods and techniques for investigating organised crime, reinforce preventive work, monitor the occurrence of juvenile crime in more depth, etc. The criminal police have established special groups of experts for combating corruption and computer crime; this will enable facilitated monitoring of criminal movements both at home and abroad and contribute to an improvement in the clear-up rate of criminal offences, which is currently already one of the best in Europe.

Estratégia Nacional de Combate ao Terrorismo (ENCT- National Strategy to Combat Terrorism). Govern of Portugal

The government has implemented in recent years, a program of actions that aims to reduce the incidence of violent radicalization processes, especially terrorist, in the Portuguese population:

1) "Future in Security" program - with the universities, to involve the community of these establishments in the prevention of terrorism, in the detection of risk behaviours and in the identification of signs of radicalization.

2) Legislative measures should be adopted to remove or block content on the Internet that supports terrorism, including the dissemination of images of attacks and victims. The site query itself should be penalized (except for research and academic purposes). Downloading a manual to manufacture an explosive should be criminalized, for example.

3) Reinforcing, by all means, the sharing of information between authorities in each country, between countries and between them and European coordination agencies, is a top priority. From the moment there is a "suspect" until the conviction.

“National Action Plan for the Prevention of Violent Radicalisation and Extremism”

“National Action Plan for the Prevention of Violent Radicalisation and Extremism”

In 2012, the Government decided on the preparation of the first national programme of measures – an Action Plan – for the prevention of violent extremism. Now the Plan has been revised. In accordance with international best practices the prevention of violent radicalisation refers to the specific measures focused on those groups and individuals who run the risk of becoming radicalised. The updated Plan continues the actions which are still relevant and which proved effective in the first programme. The Action Plan has been updated by including measures which meet the new challenges of the operating environment as well as changes therein. The Plan was prepared through extensive participation between the authorities, organisations and communities. The Ministry of the Interior steers and coordinates the implementation of the Action Plan; different authorities, organisations and communities contribute to the effort.

Political Capital Policy Research and Consulting Institute

Political Capital Policy Research and Consulting Institute

This study summarizes the results of a two-years-long research project, which focused on the attitudes towards political violence in online and offline context. The project, entitled ‘Developing innovative methods for comparative researches on violent radicalisation among the youth to help prevention’, was carried out by Political Capital. DEMOS UK – our British partner in this project – conducted certain aspects of the research. The project was supported by the European Commission programme ‘Prevention of and Fight against Crime’ (ISEC) and Open Society Foundations. We launched our project based on the experience that, while good comparative data would be the necessary (but not sufficient) precondition of any good policy strategies and decisions to prevent political violence, exact datasets are often missing for comparing the different countries and communities from the perspective of the potential for the use of violence they have. The goals of our pilot project was to develop and pilot good traditional and new comparative research methods in order to assess the threat of violent radicalisation by identifying the vulnerable groups in given EU member states where the justification and glorification of violence poses a danger. We hope this project helps us to gain a clear picture of violent extremism and its social-attitudinal background, increasing the effectiveness of prevention programmes in the future.

Plan of intervention of the Greek Government carried out by the National Police of the country (ELAS)

Plan of intervention of the Greek Government carried out by the National Police of the country (ELAS).

Due to the migratory flow, during the last decade, Greece has welcomed thousands of Muslim migrants. This, linked to the current political situation and the humanitarian and social crisis suffered by the European Union, has led to direct confrontations between various social groups.

One of them is the radicalized Muslim population, which in turn is associated with Islamic groups integrated into ISIS. Thus, the ELAS have developed a series of actions to mitigate the impact of radicalization in the prison centers, and to reduce and stop the number of Islamic radicalization groups. Among the actions that will take place, we find:

1) Training program for Greek police officers, customs guards, prison officers and immigration officers to understand the phenomenon of radicalization and locate terrorist elements within Muslim communities.

2) Monitor the use of the internet by captors and suspects who try to recruit people for the cause of ISIS.

3) Police program against radicalization in Greek prisons, emphasizing the vulnerability of inmates to be recruited or persuaded to join radical groups.

4) Specialized programs in de-radicalization within prisons, endowed with long-term sessions aimed at eliminating extremist ideologies and helping Muslim migrants to integrate into Greek society.

A De-Radicalization Strategy for Greece: Baby steps back to social common sense.

A De-Radicalization Strategy for Greece: Baby steps back to social common sense

Since 2012, the political forces in Greece have been widening and expanding towards the strongest opposition, and the contrariety and discrepancy between two of the parties that have experienced the greatest boom due to the political crisis in the country: Golden Dawn (Golden Dawn) party of extreme right, patriotic and of anti-immigration policies, and SYRIZA, party of the radical left.

The main problem of this resurgence of parties so opposed and popular at the same time, has led to a series of violent events and clashes between supporters of both sides. To this, we must add the legitimacy of the Greek government that offers two great perspectives to enhance its position; the first is the crisis of migration policies, and the conspiracy theory of European policies against Greece.

All this has created a crack in the social fabric of the country, which harms coexistence and drastically changes the social and political life of its inhabitants. The strategies to adopt to get out of this violent situation, would consist of:

1) Creation of a pro-European and community narrative, independent of the current and dominant national ideology, that seeks to prevent the spread of extremism.

2) Urge the Greek government to take part in the Radicalization Awareness Network of the European Commission, with the aim of delegitimizing violent extremism.

3) Implementation of deradicalization practices, such as family counselling, that seek to alienate people from extremist groups and radical ideologies.

The national project has been the responsibility of 20 ministerial departments and consists of 60 specific measures, enclosed in 5 axes:

1) Bring people to fight and resist radicalization

2) Complete the radicalization detection and prevention network

3) Understand and anticipate the evolution of radicalization

4) Professionalize local actors and evaluate practices

5) Counteract uprooting and disconnection.

Counter-terrorism strategy of the Government of the French Republic

Counter-terrorism strategy of the Government of the French Republic

After a follow-up of deadly attacks perpetrated in French territory and claimed by ISIS, the government decided to take measures to forge a new counter-terrorism strategy. It was not until mid-2014 when the first official measures of the Government of the French Republic were introduced:

* Implantation of the “vert” number, which sought to make available to citizens a telephone number available for any event of a terrorist nature.

* Creation in January 2016 of special deradicalization pavilions in prisons. These pavilions were specifically designed to intervene in prisoners convicted of terrorism.

* Opening of specialized deradicalization centres throughout France. This proposal aimed to inculcate citizenship values to citizens from all over the country, taking a counternarrative from violent extremist ideology.

Mhtconsult - Community Counteracting Radicalisation (CoCoRa)

Mhtconsult - Community Counteracting Radicalisation (CoCoRa)

Mhtconsult is the coordinating organisation behind the CoCoRa project. The project is co-financed by the EU-Commission, within the Erasmus+ Programme for Youth activities 2015-17. Mhtconsult is a private and independent research and development organisation, founded as a limited company. The background and rationale of the CoCoRa project and prevention concept: All over Europe we see: An increased focus on political-religious radicalisation oriented towards Daesh in the wake of the Syria civil war; An increased preparedness to prevent and counteract young people´s political-religious radicalisation, violent/militant extremism and terrorism; A variety of prevention and intervention strategies launched to respond to these phenomena throughout Europe; Most efforts aimed at strengthening the professional resources – frontline workers/practitioners as well as researchers and intelligence services etc. But despite all these effort: We still seem to witness an increasing number of radicalized youngsters, turning their heads and resources towards political-religious movements against Western-democratic societies; Civil societies and local communities are rarely an integrated part of the prevention strategies. On this background, the overall aims for the CoCoRa projects are to: To contribute to a new community-based and coproductive prevention strategy against politicial-religious radicalisation and violent extremism among young people in the risk zone for radicalization. The concrete objectives are: To develop a prevention programme focused on the strengthening of young people´s empowerment and devotion to an active fellow citizenship; To involve local communities as equal partners in developing the prevention programme, utilizing inside knowledge, confidential positions and credibility; To train the young participants for an intercultural ambassadorship to engage in dialogue and coproduction with professionals in prevention activities. Thus, the CoCora project will: Empower young people exposed for political-religious radicalization to recognize and define themselves in the concept of an equal and active fellow citizenship; Strengthen the mutual insight, credibility and trust between local professionals/practitioners and local communities in order to qualify approaches and methods in united prevention efforts; Incorporate the empowerment and equality approach to the prevention strategy in order to relate the prevention efforts clearly to the perspective of an equal and active citizenship. The CoCoRa project will provide a total prevention strategy package of transferable and accessible handbooks, including the following activities and deliverables: The CoCoRa Collaborative Programme (CCP) – a concrete concept for involving local communities to collaborate and contribute to prevention efforts among young people in risk of radicalisation towards violent political-religious extremism and even terror; The CoCoRa Prevention Programme (CPP) – a concrete concept for educating and empowering young people in the risk zone to define and follow their own visions for an equal and active citizenship, built on the basic idea of the self-including citizenship; The CoCoRa Ambassador Programme (CAP) – a concrete concept for further training of young people from the preventions programme to be spokespersons and ambassadors. The young ambassador will be responsible for the communication of needs, resources and special expertise among young people in their peer group to contribute to the common prevention effort in a collaboration with local/regional prevention authorities and professionals – thus building a sustainable bridge for a preventive strategy taking the resources of local communities into account. Thus, the basis idea is to combine the radicalization preventive perspective with an empowerment approach and knowledge input and exercises focusing on the potentials for overcoming the experience of alienation, exclusion, lack of equal treatment and even direct discrimination. The key word for this empowerment and new orientation process is our new concept of self-including citizenship, connoting the process of practicing a positive and active citizenship, even though one still may be met by negative presumptions and prejudices.

PSP-network (PSP = Police, Social Services and Psychiatry)

PSP-network (PSP = Police, Social Services and Psychiatry)

The Danish effort in preventing radicalisation and violent extremism (CVE) is primarily organized in the SSP-network. The goal of the SSPnetwork is to prevent criminal activity and behaviour among youngsters. The network consists of members of the social services, schools and police. In 2009 the initial SSP-network was by law supplemented with the PSP-network. PSP is comprised of the local Police (P), Social Services/social psychiatry (S) and Psychiatry (P) and has its target group on vulnerable people with a psychiatric diagnosis in risk of recurring criminal activity. The PSP-project is located within The Danish Agency for International Recruitment and Integration and is driven in close collaboration with the Ministry for Immigration, Integration and Housing, Ministry of Health and The Danish Security and Intelligence Services. The project is thus a governmental initiative but offered to the key organisations in the Danish local crime-prevention network. The PSP-project is also government funded and the participants don’t pay a tuition fee to participate. The included organisations aren’t compensated for sending their employees to attend the two-day course. Tailor made training course for the PSP-network The overall and primary goal of the project is to reduce potential radicalisation among vulnerable people with psychiatric and/or mental diagnosis in Denmark. It is difficult to measure as to whether the tailor-made course is sole responsible for a given effect in reducing the number of people in risk of radicalisation. Recognizing this difficulty the project is working with three secondary goals for the training course for key PSP-members. First, the aim of the tailor-made two-day training course is to raise the awareness of radicalisation among key members of the PSP-network as well as to give them knowledge of radicalisation as a social, psychological and political phenomenon. Second, the course aims at giving the participants knowledge of the Danish strategy and methods in preventing radicalisation in general as well as among mentally vulnerable people. Last, the course aims at giving the participants knowledge of the standard-operating-procedure in organisation and communication confronted with a concern of possible radicalisation.

In its role as national security authority, the Danish Security and Intelligence Service (PET) is responsible for identifying, preventing and countering threats to freedom, democracy and safety in the Danish society. This applies to threats in Denmark, as well as threats targeted at Danish nationals and Danish interests abroad. PET’s Centre for Prevention is responsible for preventing threats emanating from radicalisation and violent extremism, including disengagement and critical aftercare services as described in this document. For national security-related reasons, PET is paying great attention to individuals returning to Denmark from international war zones like Syria or Iraq. As a part of our broader range of preventive efforts PET coordinates and collaborates with the police and the municipality to re-establish their ties to the Danish society. As part of the Danish Preventive Model for countering radicalisation and violent extremism, PET facilitates, supports and coordinates the activities related to the National Critical Aftercare. Though the practice applies to all individuals on a path toward violent extremism, it has been tailored toward Danish foreign fighters. By training and cooperating with authorities within the Danish crime preventive structures, PET are working closely with the National Police, Social services, Prison and Probation Service and the psychiatric system, supporting a local preventive approach to Foreign Fighters. The aim is to reduce the risk from returning foreign fighters who may have acquired the will and capacity to carry out terror-related offenses in Denmark, including acts of violence, as a consequence of newly adopted networks, abilities to handle weapons and, not least, traumas resulting from their experiences and actions in Syria, Iraq or elsewhere. The particular practice of Disengagement and Critical Aftercare is comprised of two closely coordinated sets of activities that are aimed at pulling foreign fighters away from a path of violent extremism: Disengagement-talks initiated by PET or specially trained police officers in the police districts; Capacity building and advising critical aftercare centers at municipal level, including on casework. In order to minimize the threat of attacks committed by violent extremists, the Centre for Prevention initiates disengagement talks and assists the provision of critical aftercare services that are anchored in the national police districts (called Info houses) and supported by the local municipalities.

The theme of hate violence brings to public awareness, professional discourse and political debate. The organization consistently promotes the principles of democratic rule of law, including equality of all human beings in dignity and rights. For the benefit of our clients, of victims of hate violence, law applies in judicial and other legal protection.

In IUSTITIA deals with monitoring legislative activities, analyses the Czech legal order in the context of community and international law. It submits proposals for amendments to existing legislation in order to improve the status of people at risk of hate violence as well as to facilitate their access to justice and to the appropriate tools of restorative justice.

In IUSTITIA seeks to improve the practices of law enforcement in cases of hate violence, in particular to improve practice in the detection and investigation of hate crimes. Crimes involving the organized hate violence or hate-motivated physical assault should be addressed as a priority and with appropriate diligence.
