PrEval - Evaluation designs for prevention measures
PrEval (Evaluation designs for prevention measures - multi-method approaches to impact assessment and quality assurance in extremism prevention and the interfaces to violence prevention and political education) is a research and transfer project to survey evaluation needs and capacities in extremism prevention in Germany. PrEval aims at the development of multi-method evaluation designs and includes the interfaces to crime prevention and political education. The aim is to anchor questions of quality assurance and evaluation more firmly than before in extremism prevention, crime prevention and political education. PrEval deals with a wide range of phenomena that encompasses political and religious extremisms and addresses measures from political education, primary, secondary and tertiary prevention as well as interfaces to crime prevention. PrEval uses analysis, monitoring and mapping formats and develops multi-method evaluation designs based on selected pilot studies.
The PrEval network is coordinated by the Peace Research Institute Frankfurt (PRIF). The other partners in the network are the Leibniz Institute for Research and Information in Education (DIPF), the Global Public Policy Institute Berlin (GPPi), the Institute for Interdisciplinary Research on Conflict and Violence at the University of Bielefeld (IKG) and the Violence Prevention Network (VPN).
PrEval is funded by the German Federal Ministry of the Interior, Building and Community (BMI) from March 2020 to December 2021 with funds from the "National Prevention Program against Islamist Extremism" (NPP).
