PREVENTION OF RADICALIZATION AND EXTREMIST VIOLENCE IN CANADA

CPN-PREV (Canadian Practitioners Network for Prevention of Radicalization and Extremist Violence) is an evidence-based and practitioners-centered network established to bring forward Canadian leadership and develop excellence in countering violent radicalization. CPN-PREV supports best practices and collaborations among intervention teams, through sustained knowledge mobilization between researchers, practitioners, policymakers, and various community sectors.

Mapping

We identify existing assets and examine the level of multisectoral collaboration through a Canada-wide interactive mapping of assets (training, prevention, and intervention-focused initiatives) in matters of violent radicalization.

Outreach

We strengthen collaborative resource development by and for practitioners across multiple sectors and disciplines, through capacity building. This is done by leveraging and connecting existing Canadian assets around joint interventions in matters of violent radicalization in areas of high need.

Awareness

We seek to reduce misinformation and improve the general public’s and practitioners’ understanding of the complex and quickly evolving contexts of violent radicalization, while promoting a non-stigmatizing approach.

Training

We provide training modules for practitioners from diverse sectors that are co-designed and tailored to their specific needs and contexts. We support local implementation and field test existing training programs, toolkits, and applications on prevention of radicalization.

Best Practices

We generate evidence-based best practice guidelines and related knowledge mobilization tools that address risk assessment in case management and prevention/intervention in matters of violent radicalization.

Resources

We expand, improve, and increase access to the collection of best practices (in training, prevention, and intervention) tailored for Canadian practitioners, through a continuous knowledge mobilization process including diverse sets of outputs and activities.
