An extract from "Radicalisation: no prevention without juridicalisation" by Sergio Bianchi, analyses the prevention practices against radicalisation adopted in European prisons.

Against the increase of the phenomenon of violent extremism leading to terrorism, many prevention practices and de-radicalization tools have been promoted at European level. Doubt, however, raise on the effectiveness of such models. The expert Sergio Bianchi, in “Radicalisation: no prevention without juridicalisation”, made a comparison among various tools used throughout European prisons, concluding that current models of radicalization prevention present contradictions of various kinds, which pose serious problems to the effectiveness of the model and the resulting implications for the democratic stability of members countries. This document is an extract of the paper published by Bianchi, summarising his main points and ideas.
