In the framework of DRIVE project, Kosovar Centre for Security Studies (KCSS) has organized a training session for probation and correctional service workers on the use of risk assessment tools against radicalization and violent extremism. The training, which took place last week, was aimed at providing participants with an understanding of risk assessment theory on radicalization and violent extremism and how to identify and manage risks associated with them.
The training began with an overview session on radicalization and violent extremism. Following the overview, the participants were given a general theory of risk assessment, including the importance of risk assessment in managing violent extremist cases in Kosovo Probation and Correctional Services. The participants were also introduced to the different risk assessment tools and practices that are used to identify and manage risks associated with radicalization and violent extremism. The training included case studies on risk assessment for violent extremism offenders, which allowed participants to apply the knowledge gained in the session to real-life situations. The case studies covered various scenarios, including the identification of radicalization risk factors in individuals and the management of risks associated with extremist behavior.
The training was well received by the participants, who appreciated the opportunity to learn about the tools and practices used in risk assessment for violent extremism. The participants expressed their commitment to using the knowledge gained in the training to enhance the effectiveness of their work in managing risks associated with radicalization and violent extremism.
