Katiba of the Narvalos (Katiba des Narvalos)
The Narvalos Katiba is an apolitical collective made up of citizens of all origins who fight against jihadist activities on social networks and the Internet.

Center for Action and Prevention against the Radicalisation of Individuals (CAPRI)
The Center for Action and Prevention against the Radicalisation of Individuals is a secular and apolitical association governed by the 1901 law, financed by the State and the local authorities. Its mission is to inform and advise families and actors in the social field or youth, and to prevent radicalization by deconstruction of radical arguments and conspiracy theories, and by understanding the religious fact.
The Atelier de Recherche, Traitement et Médiation Interculturelle et Sociale is an association under the 1901 law which joined the SOS GROUP in May 2016, Europe's leading social enterprise, with 486 establishments and services in the social and medico-social field. Acting in the field of radicalization prevention, the ARTEMIS association promotes a multidisciplinary approach, including the entire universe of social sciences. It also recommends the use of mediation as a method of intervention.
The team dedicated to the prevention of radicalisation was set up in November 2016 to respond to the needs observed in the field by specialised prevention teams. Since March 2017, the team has raised awareness among a little over 120 field professionals from different sectors (child protection, animation, health, employment, etc.). These awareness sessions take place over half a day, integrated into a broader framework: the departmental plan. This is composed of two other training days (values of the Republic and secularism) for professionals.
The team takes care of minors reported as radicalized and their families, who are referred to it exclusively by the Prefect. The transmission of these situations to the Safeguard does not concern persons whose situations are legalized, but only those for which it is considered that social, educational and psychological support is possible and necessary to avoid the temptation of radicalization. Through individual and collective support, these families and their children, whose reporting forms are sent to the Safeguard, benefit from social, educational, legal and above all psychological, even ethnopsychiatric support for certain situations.
The Moroccan General Delegation of the Penitentiary Administration and Reintegration (DGAPR) launched a programme in 2017 for the benefit of persons convicted in terrorism cases. In collaboration with the Rabita Mohammadia of the Ulemas and the National Council for Human Rights (CNDH). This programme is based on three essential axes: "reconciliation with oneself, with the religious text and with society".

It occurred in two maximum security jails in the Paris suburb (AMAL Program).
Foundation for Strategic Research (FRS)
FRS is a think tank with a department on violent extremisms, PVE and CVE. It led recently a pilot program, for the French ministry of justice. This programme (AMAL) took place in two prisons in the Paris region and involved twelve jihad-related prisoners in Syria (ex-combatants, motivators, jihad candidates) or associated with terrorist attempts on national territory. This program is considered an operational success and has served as a basis for the preventive tools used in Penitentiary Wings with particularly radicalized individuals (DAECH, Nosra).

Action Courage (Aktion Courage e.V.)
Aktion Courage e.V. is responsible for the nationwide program "School without Racism, School with Courage". The project includes all "ideologies of inequality" in its approach. - Behind the term "ideologies of inequality" is the initial idea that seemingly different phenomena such as racism, anti-Semitism, homophobia, right-wing extremism, Islam, despite all differences in detail, have one thing in common: they differentiate people according to one or more characteristics, hierarchize them and derive legitimizations from them for discrimination. This approach results in the practice of project work in schools a variety of topics that are processed in individual "micro-projects".
