About the project

helping practitioners to understand what works in tackling violent radicalisation

Funded by the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme, IMPACT Europe aims to fill the gap in knowledge and understanding of what works in tackling violent radicalisation and to help practitioners engaged in counter radicalisation interventions to improve the impact of their activities.

Towards this end, some of the most renowned institutes in the field of radicalisation research from Europe and beyond have joined forces to conduct extensive, multidisciplinary, and practitioner focused research on broadening knowledge about different types of violent radicalisation and the effectiveness of various programmes when it comes to tackling these types of violent radicalisation.

Ultimately, IMPACT Europe will develop an evaluation toolkit to help professionals in the public and voluntary sectors design and implement an evaluation of their counter violent radicalisation programmes and integrate what works in their future programmes.
