Shortly after the Paris (2015) and Brussels (2016) terrorists attacks, in a climate of uncertainty and fear for the foreseeable future, the project of MINDb4ACT “Mapping, Identifying and Developing skills and opportunities in operating environments to co-create innovative, ethical and effective actions to tackle radicalization leading to violent extremism (Grant agreement no. 740543)” was presented to the European Commission.
It was a critical moment for Europe, that had to rethink a preventive strategy as well as deal with the insurgence of homegrown terrorism and the foreign fighters flow. There was a clear need to assess the existing preventing and countering practices, evaluate them and propose more innovative programmes. It is within this context that MINDb4ACT was funded and started its research path.
After three year of collaborative research, this ‘Cluster of Policy Briefs’ presents a summary of the efforts the consortium undertook to achieve the European expectations. The collection is a glimpse of the activities, findings, products, and events resulted from the project. The report aims at showing the complexity of the project, analysing the topic of radicalisation from different angles and reaching diverse audiences (i.e. academics, policymakers, private sector, stakeholders, private sector).
