The GREASE project has just published an International Handbook of Good Practices for Building Resilience Against Violent Religious Radicalisation.
Featuring findings from a dozen Case Studies carried out by regional partners, this booklet offers practical guidance on how to strengthen community resilience. At the heart of the Handbook are nine Good Practices which are explained in straight-forward terms and distilled into a succinct set of recommendations.
Nearly all good practices identified in this Handbook are illustrated with real-life examples from different countries. While acknowledging that “no panacea to violent religiously-inspired radicalisation” exists, the Handbook nonetheless provides valuable orientation for those working on the front lines. It highlights successful programmes in countries ranging from France and Egypt to Malaysia and Australia.
