Enhancing Cross-border Mutual Legal Assistance and Recognition of Decisions in Countering Terrorism and Preventing Radicalisation in Prisons

 

The Project

This project, sponsored by the European Union, consists of four seminars, two of which take place in Madrid and Vienna in 2017 and two in Utrecht and Trier in 2018. Each seminar focuses on a different aspect of enhancing cross-border mutual legal assistance and recognition of decisions in countering terrorism and preventing radicalisation in prisons, with the aim being to provide practical training for a broad spectrum of legal professionals and practitioners, ministry officials and officials from judicial training institutions, prison administrations and the probation services in the relevant fields.

The Concept

Each seminar is targeted at judges, prosecutors, lawyers in private practice, ministry officials and officials from judicial training institutions, prison administrations and the probation services (approx. 50 participants per seminar) from all eligible Member States (the UK and Denmark do not participate in the Justice Programme 2014-2020). Each training event lasts 1½ days.

Programme

The programme offers a mix of training methods, from lectures to interactive workshops. At the heart of the training is an analysis of issues surrounding cross-border cooperation, mutual legal assistance and recognition of decisions in countering terrorism, its financing and radicalisation in detention, as well as alternatives to imprisoning radicalised individuals. Participants' application of relevant legal instruments is improved through real-time training and knowledge-sharing. Mutual trust between participants across platforms is strengthened and an understanding of each other’s work through, amongst others, a better understanding of the tools available to them at both a national and cross-border level, as well as the correct application of the relevant EU and other international standards in relation to countering terrorism and radicalisation in prisons. This will also be achieved by an exchange of best practice and experiences.

Networking Opportunities

This project supports networking by giving the participants from various EU Member States the opportunity to make personal contacts with other participants and speakers, leading to an exchange of best practice and experience in the course of the offered training
