Jurisdictionalization in prevention of radicalisation and terrorism in Belgium

Wednesday 29 January 2020, 09:45 to 13:00




This roundtable discussion is organized in the framework of the EU-funded project JP-COOPs. The project aims to tackleexisting gaps in counter-radicalization policies and practices through the cross-border cooperation of training providers. The project will ultimately contribute to strengthening and institutionalizing training courses on judicial and police cooperation within a public-private framework.

The objective of the roundtable is to set up the discussion between first-line practitioners specializing on penitentiary and judiciary issues in the areas of counterterrorism and prevention of violent extremism and radicalization. The participants will exchange professional experiences and views on challenges in processing terrorism-related cases and further preventive policies.
