TERRORIST AND VIOLENT EXTREMIST OFFENDERS
This Thematic Research Meeting (TRM), entitled From Prison to Society: Enhancing Continuity between Detention and Post-Release Programming in Cases of Terrorist and Violent Extremist Offenders, took place on the 14th and 15th of September 2021. It brought together 18 leading researchers from Australia, Austria, Croatia, Denmark, France, Germany, Ireland, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, and the United Kingdom to discuss their insights about interventions with radicalised offenders, and to share experiences and best practices for rehabilitation and post-release programming. A core emphasis was placed on issues of continuity in the delivery of these interventions, in particular as offenders transition from prisons to probation, and then on to the community. Key recommendations are provided below, based on the assessments of the experts presented in this paper.
