UCR is a partner in ORPHEUS (Offline and online Radicalization Prevention Holding back Extremism and Upholding Security), a three-and-a-half year project with eight partners from the UK, Belgium, France and the Netherlands.

The project explores alternative forms of offline and online prevention of political violence among socially alienated young people.

The threat of radicalization towards all types of political violence, such as jihadi, extreme right, hate crime, is a significant and rising societal concern. ORPHEUS will develop new integrated and aligned services for online and offline prevention of political violence by extending the prevention service together with private and social institutions, and with young people and their educators as central actors.
