This ebook aims to provide insights into the topic of violent radicalisation and the usage of restorative dialogue for its’ prevention and reduction especially within criminal justice settings.


The ebook was produced as part of the ERASMUS+ project RDaVR – Restorative Dialogue against Violent Radicalisation and it was written by the partner organisations involved: RJ4All, BOSEV, I&F, CPIP, Sinergia, Tuzla, and Casa Eslava. RDaVR was put together to provide an alternative approach to preventing violent radicalization and extremism based on dialogue and restorative justice.


This ebook was put together by all partners who carried out specific fieldwork that will allow the training programme to be aligned with the local and current realities of criminal justice professionals, but also put it in the cultural, social, and geographical context of the communities in which it will be implemented. Each partner country held 6-10 interviews with professionals working with offenders, ex-offender, and those at risk of violent radicalisation, and conducted 1-2 focus groups with stakeholders.
