Council of Europe Handbook for Prison and Probation Services regarding Radicalisation and Violent Extremism

EU European Union
Council of Europe

The Guidelines are intended to provide a general legal and ethical framework for devising appropriate policies and responses which conform to the Council of Europe standards and principles related to the rule of law and protection of human rights. They uphold the importance of investing in good prison and probation management and the need to train staff to high professional and ethical standards in order to effectively counter radicalisation leading to violent extremism. They also emphasise that prison and probation work should be seen as part of a comprehensive multi-agency strategy to combat violent extremism.
