The International Center for the Prevention of Crime (ICPC) was invited to share its projects and experiences during the OSCE Counter-Terrorism Conference in Bratislava, Slovakia.
The main purpose of this international encounter was to take stock of the efforts made to prevent and combat terrorism and violent extremism and radicalization that lead to terrorism in the OSCE area.
During this conference, some major aspects discussed were:
– The study of programs and approaches that help identify, divert and support those at risk of radicalization towards terrorist violence, such as referral mechanisms and pre-criminal interventions.
– The study of penitentiary and non-custodial programs aimed at rehabilitating and reintegrating terrorist offenders while ensuring that their criminal acts are properly prosecuted.
– The study of progress on international cooperation in the fight against terrorism and the implementation of good practices in the prevention of VERLT (Violent Extremism and Radicalization that Lead to Terrorism) in the OSCE area.
