Violence Prevention Network

Violence Prevention Network is an association consisting of experienced experts which has been successfully active in violence and extremism prevention, as well as in the deradicalisation of violent offenders with an extremist motivation.

The team at Violence Prevention Network has been working successfully since 2001 towards reducing the incidence of serious and grievous violent offences committed by juveniles and young adults with an ideological or religious motivation. Violence Prevention Network has been working since 2013 with the Advice Centre on Radicalisation at the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees. Violence Prevention Network is supported within this framework by the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees and by the Federal Ministry of the Interior.

Violence Prevention Network additionally implements the KOMPASS Advice Centre project in Berlin.


The KOMPASS Advice Centre

The KOMPASS Advice Centre is there for juveniles and young adults who are recognisably undergoing a radicalisation process within the context of religiously-motivated extremism, and who cannot yet be considered motivated to exit the scene. Young people wishing to distance themselves from the extremist scene will also find advice and someone to talk to in the shape of the KOMPASS Advice Centre.

Family members and sponsors of juveniles and young adults who wish to exit and distance themselves from the scene are also welcome at the KOMPASS Advice Centre.
The KOMPASS Advice Centre is part of the deradicalisation network of the Senate Administration of the Interior and Sport of the Land Berlin, and is implemented under the aegis of Violence Prevention Network.
