4th–5th October 2022 | Cluj-Napoca (Romania)

International Forum on PVE/CVE/De-Radicalisation and Crime Prevention

Evaluation and Evidence-Based Practice

‘Advancing Evidence-Based Practice &

Evaluation in PVE/CVE/De-Radicalisation and Crime Prevention

INDEED is a 3-year research and innovation project financed under the HORIZON 2020 Programme which strives to strengthen first-line practitioners’ and policy makers’ knowledge, capabilities and skills for designing, planning, implementing and evaluating of PVE/CVE and De-radicalisation initiatives. Its planned results promise major progress in the field mentioned above.
After one year of implementation, INDEED is pleased to announce an event to be held in Cluj-Napoca, Romania between 4-5 October 2022, to present the first findings and topics that the team has been working on and what is on the horizon for the next year. The event is also intended to initiate a debate on evidence-based practice and evaluation in the field of PVE / CVE / De-radicalisation and crime prevention, the main areas covered by the INDEED project.

About the event

A 2-Day Forum bringing together experts, practitioners and policy makers working on PVE/CVE/De-radicalisation and crime prevention policy and practice, with a special focus on improving and advancing evidence-based practice and evidence-based evaluation. The event will use forefront practices of design meetings, expert and practitioner exchange, parallel panels, presentations and workshop sessions, and headline events to make it (one of) the pre-eminent events in 2022 on advancing evaluation in the PVE/CVE/De-Radicalisation and crime prevention fields.

A Partnership-Based Approach – How it will be organised
Rather than being presented as an event of a single platform, organisation or project, the Forum is open to invite every major organisation, institution, think tank, university in the field and EC-supported projects to join and co-design the event. This will maximise value and attractiveness of the Forum while also practically promoting collaboration – doing more together than can be done apart.

The Forum will include key-note presentations by leading experts, practitioners and policy makers in the field, parallel workshops and working sessions organised on key themes, an ‘Experts & Practitioners Forum’, and more. Using design-based approaches the Forum will provide a multi-sectoral, multi-stakeholder platform to:

  • Identify the most important areas of policy and practice to improve evidence-based policy, practice and evaluation.
  • Share forefront lessons from the field and from research on evidence-based practice and evaluation.
  • Bring together key stakeholders from local, national, EU and international organisations to advance – together – the state of policy and practice in the field.
