Mission in Kosovo delivers training of trainers on Violent Extremism and Radicalisation that Lead to Terrorism

Summary

From 21 to 25 May, the OSCE Mission in Kosovo delivered a training course for trainers on techniques for collecting criminal intelligence, with a focus on individuals involved in terrorist activities in different capacities.

This tailored training targeted 11 certified trainers from the Kosovo Police Counter-Terrorism Directorate and Training Division and presented skills on how to effectively deliver training on terrorism and violent extremism. The course enhanced participants’ understanding of new trends of terrorism and violent extremism, foreign terrorist fighters, and OSCE efforts in supporting relevant institutions to address these threats. Participants also learned about different intelligence collection techniques, multiple intelligence approaches, intelligence report writing and other means of gathering information from victims and witnesses of terrorist acts, and individuals with VERLT (Violent Extremism and Radicalisation that Lead to Terrorism) potential. Specific focus was given to planning, preparation, and application of adult teaching methods in delivering such training courses in the future.
