LIAISE – Local institutions against violent extremism
Radicalisation and violent extremism need to be tackled through a strong preventative approach as well as just repressive responses, which are not sufficient on their own. A prevention policy must mobilise local partnerships for delinquency prevention and social cohesion to strengthen individual and group resilience to the risks of radicalisation. Through their proximity to citizens, their understanding of local issues and their skills in public policies for the prevention of crime and for social cohesion, local and regional authorities are strategically placed to implement actions and mobilise all local stakeholders concerned.
Between September 2014 and December 2017, the European Forum for Urban Security (Efus) led, with funding from the European Commission, the LIAISE “Local institutions against violent extremism” project for exchanging and strengthening the capacities of European local authorities for the implementation of prevention projects against violent radicalisation.
