DRR practice: the six pillars

DRR practices are still an important, yet understudied aspect of (de)radicalization trajectories in countries that repatriated individuals who had engaged in the promotion of violent extremism and participated in foreign conflicts. There is a growing consensus that DRR practices require community-level tailoring in order to ensure an optimal impact on deradicalization.

According to this and in line with scholarship on DRR, DRIVE underlined  six (6) main pillars:

  1. Inter-governmental/inter-institutional collaboration;
  2. Risk Assessment tools;
  3. Prison-based rehabilitation programs;
  4. Preparedness of Frontline Practitioners;
  5. Re-integration measures;
  6. Vulnerable categories (women and minors)

Target of the analysis

Based on the context of countries and their approach in DRR, different institutions are engaged in the DRR activities. The DRR stakeholders which need to be analysed their role in DRR are as follow:

  • Ministry of Interior Affairs
  • Government bodies for implementation of R&R strategy in national level
  • Ministry of Justice
  • Correctional and Probation Services
  • Local Municipalities
  • Civil Society Organizations
  • Media and Journalists
  • Local Safety and Security Bodies
  • Ministry of Culture and Social Welfare
  • International and local donors
  • Public Education System (primary and secondary education system)
  • Ministry of Labor and Social Welfare
  • Regional and local labor social centers.
  • Community
  • Community Policing


In this section, you can find, methodologies, Country Reports and comparative reports aimed to offer a comparative analysis of the institutional and community level DRR practices in respective country case-studies in order to:

  1. Provide a thematic overview of the legal basis for DRR practices and policies in place in the respective countries;
  2. Assess the efficiency of country-specific DRR practices and induce best-practices in the form of recommendations.
  3. Provide needs assessment to develop supporting tools and training modules in order to improve and exchange DRR practices
