This project applies to the part of the Call JUST-AG-2016-03 providing as a priority for the training of institutional workers of prison and probation services. In particular, starting from what is already being carried out in Italy and in other EU countries in the field of staff training with reference to violent radicalisation, and keeping into account the recent standards worked out by EU and by the Council of Europe in this field, training courses will be developed for various professionals working in the field of penal execution, As well as for judges (supervisory judges, judges of ordinary courts, judges of family and of juveniles), members of third sector and local bodies (police and healthcare assistance).

Indeed, the Italian Ministry of Justice has been experimenting, for many years, the effectiveness of multi-disciplinary training. This is in full harmony with the idea of rehabilitation treatment as it is provided for by the Italian Penitentiary Act, which sets the teamwork of the “équipe” of various professionals as the strong point for drafting effective individualized programs for the rehabilitation and the reintegration of each offender.

It is one T.R.A.inTRAINING intention to include the judiciary – ordinary, supervisory and juvenile judiciary – in the beneficiaries of multi-disciplinary training. Indeed, we deem that the collaboration between professionals of the penal execution and the judiciary, based on an open, loyal, prompt and complete exchange and sharing of data and information, can be a further step – of great utility – for a higher and higher effectiveness of the actions carried out in the fight against and prevention of violent radicalisation. A further innovation is the involvement of judges of family, who will participate in training courses.

Moreover, this project also develops, where the method of information sharing among the various actors involved is implemented, the item of the Call relevant to “sharing of relevant information between law enforcement, security services and prosecution and, where applicable, with local authorities and social workers”.
