In response to ongoing societal concerns about violent extremism in Europe, in 2019 ORPHEUS (Offline and Online Radicalization Prevention, Holding back Extremism and Upholding Security) was awarded funding by Interreg 2Seas for a 4-year project to develop a new integrated prevention model to tackle the risk factors for violent extremism in democratic societies, regardless of ideological background, by fostering resilience in young people and professionals supporting them. Partner agencies in Belgium, France, the Netherlands and the UK – including local governments, youth work and educational organisations and universities – worked together to develop and test the new model, a summary of which is presented below, with advice on how regions can adapt and incorporate it into local prevention policy and practice.
