PREVENTING RADICALIZATION

Over the past several decades, Quebec has eveloped exceptional expertise in the prevention of a broad range of social problems such as suicide, drug addiction, and crime. The Centre for the Prevention of Radicalization Leading to Violence (CPRLV) applies the same preventive approach in dealing with radicalization leading to violence and hate crimes and incidents in Quebec.

Synergistic Competencies

The CPRLV works proactively by addressing the multiple causes and conditions the contribute to the emergence of radicalization. Of fundamental importance to this process is the concerted involvement of all relevant actors. Prevention is therefore the product of all the efforts made by Quebec society as a whole—members of the general public of all ages, front-line workers, community organizations, police services, public and private institutions, etc.

Types of Preventative Action Employed by the CPRLV

The CPRLV works with its specialized prevention and intervention team to develop concrete strategies and approaches for reducing the risk of individuals becoming violently radicalized and for preventing negative consequences for such individuals, their friends and family, and society at large.
Through the training, guides and tools it has developed, the CPRLV raises public awareness of the diverse forms of violent radicalization, of behaviours that may be signs that a person is becoming radicalized, and of compassionate and respectful ways of responding to the phenomenon best suited to the type of situation. At the same time, the CPRLV is working on creating a series of tools and initiatives for the prevention of hate crimes and incidents, and developing strategies aimed at supporting communities in building and maintaining social togetherness.
