The INDEED International Forum Secretariat


The 2-Day INDEED International Forum is being organized to advance the field of evidence-based evaluation and evidence-based policy and practice in PVE/CVE and DeRadicalisation initiatives (programmes, actions, policies, and strategies). 

The Forum will bring together leading international experts, practitioners, law enforcement agencies and civil society organisations, representatives of governments, the European Commission, the United Nations, universities, research institutes and think tanks, and donors to facilitate multi-stakeholder discussions, exchange, learning from best practices in the field, and identifying practical recommendations to improve the use of evidence-based evaluation and evidence-based policy making and practice in the field.  


The INDEED International Forum will:

  • identify the most important lessons and experiences to help improve evidence-based policy, practice and evidence-based evaluation
  • share forefront lessons from the field and from research on evidence-based practice and evaluation
  • foster vibrant exchange and dialogue on evidence-based practice and evaluation in the field of PVE / CVE / De-radicalisation and crime prevention
  • and bring together key stakeholders from local, national, EU and international organisations to advance – together – the state of policy and practice in the field

The Forum will include key-note presentations, parallel workshops/working sessions organised on key themes and several sub-topics. Partners, Government Agencies, Universities, Law Enforcement Agencies, Organisations and Academics are invited to contribute through organizing sessions, workshops and presentations on the work they are doing in the field.

The Forum will be the largest event of its kind to-date bringing together experts from Europe and internationally to share best practices, lessons and experiences to advance the field of evidence-based evaluation in PVE/CVE/De-Radicalisation and Crime Prevention programming.

The preliminary agenda and registration link will be provided in due time.


The INDEED network of geographical SMART HUBS (Stakeholder Multisectoral Anti-Radicalisation Teams) brings together first-line practitioners, policy makers and representatives of education and academia actively involved in designing, planning, implementation and evaluation of PVE / CVE and De-radicalisation initiatives such as policies and strategies, long term programmes, short term actions, ad hoc interventions.

Geographical SMART Hubs will be established in all 15 countries represented in the consortium; each Hub has a Focal Point who is the first point of contact for stakeholders.

The network of SMART Hubs enables INDEED’s stakeholders to proactively be involved from the early phase of INDEED to ensure a user-centred co-design of the project outcomes that will be of direct use and applicability by the various groups.


Participants – including governments, NGOs, academics and universities, experts, community-based organisations, policy makers, EC and UN officials, donor institutions and more – may participate either as individuals or as organisations/IGOs, governments or agencies.  

We also welcome proposals to organize workshops, panel presentations, case studies, innovation sessions and more. The aim of the Forum is to provide a front-of-field, highly enriching, and practical opportunity to feature leading innovations, lessons learned, and recommendations for improving evidence-based evaluation, policy and practice in the P/CVE, De-Radicalisation and Crime Prevention fields.  

To this end, the Forum Secretariat will actively reach out to and invite contributions from leading experts and partners around the world. At the same time, we also invite you to submit  proposals for sessions, workshops, case study presentations and more. An online form will be created shortly, but in the meantime, if you have proposals for sessions you can reach out to the INDEED International Forum Secretariat directly at:
