Specialist Centre for the Prevention of Radicalisation
The Saxony-Anhalt Center for the Prevention of Radicalization in Prison and Prisoner Assistance supports and encourages professionals in prison and prisoner assistance to recognize radicalization at an early stage. The focus is on phenomena of right-wing extremism as well as radicalization based on religion or ethnoreligion, such as Islamism or violent Salafism. The aim is to initiate and support preventive measures for the target groups. The aim is to combine measures within and outside the prison system: Processes of distancing and/or value appropriation in the sense of the Basic Law and human rights that are initiated in prison should not break off, but should be further supported and promoted in the resocialization process. The project work supports successful and relapse-preventing resocialization as a goal and task of all actors in the criminal justice system, also with regard to the prevention of extremism.
The center's services are aimed at professionals working in the field of independent criminal assistance and the social services of the justice system, as well as at employees of correctional facilities in the state of Saxony-Anhalt. The following services are available free of charge through FRaP:
- Need-based training on radicalization and radicalization prevention in the above-mentioned areas of phenomena
- Needs-based in-house training for teams within an executing agency or institution
- case-related consultations
- Support in the development and implementation of offers and approaches that are suitable for specifically countering anti-human attitudes, ideologies of inequality and radicalization.
- Development and implementation of preventive, life-world-related, resource-activating offers inside and outside the prison (social group work)
