In 2012, the Government decided on the preparation of the first national programme of measures – an Action Plan – for the prevention of violent extremism. Now the Plan has been revised. In accordance with international best practices the prevention of violent radicalisation refers to the specific measures focused on those groups and individuals who run the risk of becoming radicalised. The updated Plan continues the actions which are still relevant and which proved effective in the first programme. The Action Plan has been updated By including measures which meet the new challenges of the operating environment as well as changes therein. The Plan was prepared through extensive participation between the authorities, organisations and communities. The Ministry of the Interior steers and coordinates the implementation of the Action Plan; different authorities, organisations and communities contribute to the effort.
