Kosovar Centre for Security Studies (KCSS) in partnership with the International Center for Counter-Terrorism (ICCT) from the Netherlands, has started a two-day training with the Kosovo Probation Service (KPS) and the Kosovo Correctional Service (KCS) for the drafting of programs of rehabilitation and reintegration (R&R) of radicalized persons. Lecturers in this training are: Skënder Përteshi, researcher at KCSS, Adrian Shtuni, expert and consultant on terrorism issues, Dr. Joana Cook, Professor of Terrorism and Political Violence at the University of Leiden and Méryl Demuynck, Research Associate at ICCT.
The topics addressed during this training will be the challenges of a successful R&R program in Kosovo, good rehabilitation and re-integration practices that can be implemented in Kosovo, as well as the support needed to implement R&R programs for radicalized persons or persons convicted of acts of terrorism. Furthermore, the participants will have the opportunity to expand their knowledge about monitoring the impact of rehabilitation and reintegration programs for those convicted of terrorism offenses. The main part of the training will be the gender component in the issues of rehabilitation and reintegration.
This activity is organized in the framework of the project 'Increase capabilities of Kosovo Probation Service in countering terrorism and violent extremism” supported by the Kingdom of the Netherlands and the British Embassy in Pristina.
