European Commission: Call for Proposals on Preventing and Countering Violent Radicalisation

Deadline: 19 March 2019

European Commission is inviting proposals for its grant program with an objective to develop effective responses and tools to prevent and counter all forms of radicalisation in priority areas such as children and youth, community engagement, local dimension and multi-agency approach and prisons with a focus on mapping, analysis, exchanges and evaluation of existing approaches as well as developing methodologies and approaches with a high degree of transferability.

Priorities Area

Project applications submitted under the present Call for Proposals must address at least one of the following priorities:

  • Improving the community engagement (possibly including with informal actors) and the multi-agency cooperation on preventing and countering radicalisation leading to violent extremism;
  • Supporting local actors, including non-profit organisations, by enhancing their knowledge and capacity to prevent and counter radicalisation. Considering the particular vulnerabilities of children and young people, support to local actors addressing also these groups would be particularly welcome.


  • On community engagement and multi-agency cooperation:
    • Development, testing, implementation and roll-out of models, methodologies and tools, with a high degree of transferability to other (local) contexts and in other countries, on how to organise community engagement aiming at preventing and countering radicalisation, focusing on one or more communities (including faithbased communities) and/or informal actors (such as family members of radicalised people);
    • Development, testing, implementation and roll-out of models, methodologies and tools, with a high degree of transferability to other (local) contexts and in other countries, on how to implement multi-agency cooperation aiming at preventing and countering radicalisation.
  • On support of local prevent actors:
    • Enhancement of the capacity of local actors, e.g. small NGOs, associations or local administrations, to provide prevent and counter radicalisation services; including by developing support structures offering to all relevant local actors tailored trainings or consultancy services in different fields, e.g. helping them to implement specific initiatives (on a long term or ad hoc basis);
    • Increased cooperation between local actors in different Member States aiming at the development of common prevent projects building on complementary capacities and knowledge.
