About the MIRAD project
The main goals of the MIRAD project are:
- to support cooperation in the field of cessation of engagement and reintegration programs between public institutions and community organizations,
- to organize training courses on IRS (Individual Radicalization Screening) with special emphasis on tools taking into account ideology and gender, increased effectiveness of decommissioning programs promoting transversal transition programs for VETOs.
MIRAD activities mainly focus on right-wing and Islamic radicalism with a significant gender dimension. Project tasks include developing a tool and training to assess the level of credibility of NGOs, extending the IRS with an ideology-aware component, a blended training approach, developing models and protocols for interinstitutional cooperation towards effective cessation of engagement and successful social reintegration. The duration of the project is 18 months, from January 1, 2022 to May 30, 2023.
