The goal of CICERO project is to develop and implement a counter-narrative communication campaign aimed at preventing radicalisation leading to violent extremism, accompanied by a methodology for evaluating the campaign’s effectiveness. the campaign will rely on both online and offline communication channels for disseminating a wide range of multimedia contents, produced by the consortium, to the different audiences. CICERO will deal with different kinds of radicalisation narratives, ranging from those related to politico-religious extremism (e.g. jihadist), to left-wing, right-wing and single issue extremism. The aim is undermine the appeal of the extremism propaganda, while also providing credible and positive alternatives to the related narratives. Civil society engagement efforts, including organisation of “train-the-trainers” workshops directed at specific stakeholders, will be undertaken to further enhance the ability of civil society to detect and cope with radicalisation leading to violent extremism. In order to maximise the effectiveness of the CICERO campaign, the consortium will develop and implement a multi-layered evaluation methodology, allowing to progressively monitor and evaluate the campaign’s impact on the designated target audiences.
