ÉTUDE INTERNATIONALE SUR LES DISPOSITIFS DE PRÉVENTION DE LA RADICALISATION ET DE L'EXTRÉMISME VIOLENTS DANS L'ESPACE FRANCOPHONE/
In collaboration with the OIF and stakeholders (Fédération Wallonie–Bruxelles, French Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Government of Quebec), FrancoPREV is carrying out a study on the mechanisms for preventing violent radicalization and extremism that can lead to terrorism in the French-speaking area. The countries targeted by the research are: in Europe, Belgium; in North America, Canada; in North Africa, Tunisia and Morocco; in Central and West Africa, Cameroon, Mauritania, Niger and Togo. This study, whose coordination has been entrusted to the UNESCO-PREV Chair, will be carried out in close partnership with the Institute for Security Studies (ISS), the Resource and Support Centre (CRÉA) of the Network for Dealing with Extremism and Violent Radicalism, the African Centre for International Diplomatic, Economic and Strategic Studies (CEIDES) and the Applied Social Sciences Forum (ASSF).
GOALS AND METHODOLOGY
The general aims of the international study on the mechanisms for preventing violent radicalization and extremism in the French-speaking countries are to conduct an inventory of the current situation and the challenges of prevention mechanisms in different French-speaking countries and to identify promising practices and lessons learned. Furthermore, the study will present conclusions and courses of action likely to contribute to the establishment of definitive and shared recommendations. The study will be structured around a review of scientific literature, grey literature and interviews with experts, members of government and civil society reflecting the diversity of the Francophone space.
A compilation of good practices and lessons learned in the analyzed countries will be established. Courses of action will be submitted to the experts of the FrancoPREV Network for discussion with a focus on formulating recommendations.
