Central and Eastern European Network for the Prevention of Intolerance and Group Hatred

 

In light of increasing levels of intolerance, discrimination and group hatred in Europe, the CEE Prevent Net project aims at safeguarding young people by strengthening their resilience toward these phenomena and their skills to contribute to a peaceful and democratic society.

Building on the previous project European Fair Skills, CEE Prevent Net focuses on Central and Eastern Europe and Eastern Germany, since this region shares common socio-historic experiences, structural conditions and current challenges.

The project’s main objectives comprise fostering the capacity of practitioners from social/youth work and non-formal education to deal with intolerance, group hatred and violence among young people; creating a platform for multi-agency cooperation in the project countries and across the CEE region; mustering support from stakeholders and policy-makers beyond political partisanship and societal cleavages; and raising awareness for CEE issues and approaches in European and international prevention networks, where this region is still under-represented.

The project’s activities include a transfer of good practices in an international summer school, peer coaching and youth workshops in each of the project countries as well as the publication of “Compendium of Good Practices”; “Prevent Seminars” that provide practitioners and other stakeholders in prevention work with tested strategies for how to professionally address intolerance, discrimination and group hatred in the local context; two meetings of a multi-agency roundtable in each country to facilitate dialogue between practitioners, stakeholders and policy-makers in each project region; and advocacy activities to productively involve partners from across the political sphere in the project activities and the development of prevention work on the local and national level.
