Course on “Psychoeducational Models of Intervention in the Classroom”

The first course on “Psychoeducational Models of Intervention in the Classroom”, organized by the Euro-Arab Foundation as part of the actions designed by the European project ARMOUR: Radical Model of Resilience for Young Minds[TyC1] , will be held until February 8.

This project is aimed at frontline professionals in state institutions and civil society, working with young people susceptible and vulnerable to radicalization.

With the collaboration of the Andalusian CCOO Teaching Federation and taught by staff of the Euro-Arab Foundation, this first course is offered in virtual format and lasts one month, in which almost a hundred teachers from the Andalusian community have enrolled.

The course is divided into a first theoretical section on radicalization and its prevention, followed by 7 workshops: coaching and parenting; development of critical thinking; anger management; narrative therapy; simulation and debate; conflict resolution; principle of proportionality.

Its programming is based on the experimental laboratories developed by the ARMOUR project. They provide material for teachers to better understand the challenges and strategies recommended to overcome difficult situations in their daily practice, focusing on how radicalization can be managed, reversed and channeled towards positive forms of self-affirmation and success.

The Euro-Arab Foundation hopes that this first approach to the subject of radicalization by the teachers enrolled in this course will be the beginning of future training actions on issues of radicalization and prevention. The debates generated among the participants in this first training experience will undoubtedly allow perfecting future training actions which will continue to be given to the educational community on a permanent basis.

The social and labour inclusion of immigrants makes the digital leap in Granada.

This is a trial program that is being tested in Granada (Spain), through the UGR, Cyprus and Italy.

The Euro-Arab Foundation of Granada has begun testing the digital platform designed by the European project MI-ICT, an initiative that develops tools to facilitate the social and labour inclusion of migrants, refugees or asylum seekers.

The European MI-ICT project is an initiative focused on the area of Public Services for migration based on information and communication technologies that starts its third phase of implementation with the testing of the multilingual digital platform designed to achieve its objectives.

This software solution aims to improve access to the labour market for migrants or asylum seekers by linking people with jobs and opportunities for personal development, always taking into account their specific contexts, as reported by the University of Granada in a statement.

This digital prototype is being tested in Spain, Cyprus and Italy, the three pilot countries of the project, and has counted in its design with the users, which would be immigrants or refugees, with the NGOs and service providers, either public or private, and with a third group composed of experts.

The Euro-Arab Foundation is in charge of developing the tests of this platform in the Faculty of Law. This prototype covers areas such as training, employment, accommodation, language, social security, legal issues, mobility, health and social integration activities.

The MIICT project, in which the Euro-Arab Foundation participates along with fourteen other partner organizations from ten European countries, addresses the challenge of integrating migrants.

Through its own methodology, this European project seeks to involve public authorities, key civil society organizations, public service providers, interest groups and migrants, refugees and asylum seekers to jointly advance their desired social and economic inclusion in the host countries.

Experts and researchers participate in the experimental laboratories of the SAT LAW project

As part of the technical package of qualitative research of the SAT-LAW project, two experimental laboratories organized by the Euro-Arab Foundation and the University of Granada will be held today, Thursday 5th and tomorrow 6th November. These meetings will allow the exchange of information and experiences between the key agents involved, as well as the sharing of problems and needs detected in the use of the instrument of criminal judicial cooperation created by Directive 2014/41/EU on the European system of criminal investigation.

The aim of these laboratories is to identify both the legal and factual obstacles that arise in the execution of OIEs (passive) and in the issuing. It will also allow, from a perspective very close to the judicial reality, to suggest practices or solutions to the problems that the project has previously identified.

Due to the mobility restriction measures adopted by the crisis caused by the Covid-19, these laboratories have been adapted to the online modality.

The European Project SAT LAW -Strategic Assessment for Law and Police Cooperation, financed by the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Justice and Consumers, deals with the application of Directive 2014/41/EU regarding the European Criminal Investigation Order (ECIO), which lays the foundations for a new system of judicial cooperation for criminal investigations in the European Union based on the principle of mutual recognition.

The objective of SAT LAW is to contribute to the biannual report on the implementation of this Directive in order to detect the state of harmonization and its interrelation with other judicial instruments in the different European countries.

This European project, led by the Italian Ministry of Justice – Regional Directorate of the Penitentiary Administration of the Triveneto, is constituted by a consortium in which institutions from 8 countries participate: Spain, through the Euro-Arab Foundation and the University of Granada, Bulgaria, Cyprus, France, Greece, Italy, Czech Republic and Malta.

ARMOUR evaluates violent extremism prevention projects

The ARMOUR (Radical Resilience Model for Young Minds) project, co-financed by the European Commission, in which the Euro-Arab Foundation works together with partners from eight European Union countries, has held a discussion group on the evaluation of projects for the prevention of violent extremism.

Experts and professionals from different areas participated in this discussion group. From the academic field, where they have been studying the processes of radicalization for years, to front-line professionals who carry out their activities in fields as different as the legal and educational or civil service. 

During the interesting discussion that took place in this session, issues related to the capabilities that certain professionals have when implementing and evaluating a program of this type were assessed; the different problems surrounding evaluation, such as the difficulty of defining certain objectives or the indicators used for evaluation, among others; the need to create specific evaluations, moving away from generalizations; the ethical dilemmas involved in evaluation as well as the most relevant methods, the costs involved in evaluation or the problems of moving from design to implementation. The discussion left instructive phrases such as “we must see what we did before and do not do now, and what was not done before and is done now” or categorical phrases such as “monitoring is as important as evaluation”.

The results of this focus group, in conjunction with another group to be held in the Netherlands, are intended to improve the evaluation proposal for a prevention program created within the framework of this project. This proposal consists of different modules offering keys and tools aimed to help frontline professionals in their task of educating and strengthening the resilience of young people in the face of radicalization. These modules will soon be available in course format from the First-line-practitioner ( and Hermes ( platforms in different languages.
