H2020-Project MINDb4ACT: Innovative approaches and policies against violent extremism

Developing skills and building a community of practice for innovative, ethical and effective actions against violent extremism

The issue of radicalization leading to terrorism has become a crucial part of the political and academic agendas in Europe, confronted, especially in the last decade, not only to the threat from Jihadist terrorism but also with right/left wing violent extremism. Though violent radicalization is not a new phenomenon, its most recent manifestations require a more comprehensive and holistic approach addressing not only security concerns but also framing of the problem in social and psychological terms.

MINDb4ACT tries to solve limitations in conventional research methodologies through the Living Labs framework in which all stakeholders –academia, Law Enforcement Agencies (LEAs), private sector, governments, municipalities, first-line respondents and other practitioners– collaborate to co-design new practices to prevent violent extremisms addressing all dimension (security, political, societal and ethical).
