Pilot survey in Italy

Families can play a crucial role in facilitating the onset of drug use as well as in preventing it and in supporting the recovery process. The collaboration between families and professionals in this field is therefore one of the most effective elements.

Considering the scale and the evolution of drug consumption modalities, there is a need to identify adequate tools for families to prevent and recognize at-risk behaviors and possibly intervene if such behaviors result in drug use or in the progression towards substance use disorders.

In order to identify the root causes of radicalisation and violent extremism, and establish what kind of interventions are more effective in building the resilience of a community towards the appeal of resolving grievances by violent means, UNICRI launched a comprehensive multi-year effort in nine countries of the regions of Maghreb and Sahel in 2015. Following an intensive period of implementation, UNICRI has initiated an evaluation of the projects implemented by 83 organisations in Algeria, Burkina Faso, Chad, Libya, Mali, Mauritania, Morocco, Niger and Tunisia.

In August 2016, UNICRI conducted an assessment mission in Mali to present its programme on Rehabilitation & Reintegration of Violent Extremist Offenders (VEOs), developed within the framework of the UN Counter-Terrorism Implementation Task Force (CTITF). The presentation was addressed to key national and international stakeholders and aimed to ensure their engagement.
