The goal of the 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 CICERO consortium will, at first, identify the target audiences that are considered particularly susceptible to extremist propaganda. The most prominent radicalisation narratives circulating across the EU will then be collected and analysed. 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.



  • To undermine the appeal of the extremist propaganda, while also providing credible and positive alternatives to the related narratives;
  • To empower civil society in the prevention of violent radicalisation across the EU;
  • Enhance the ability of civil society to detect and cope with radicalisation leading to violent extremism;
  • Enhancing resilience and critical thinking of stakeholders;
  • Promote the democratic values and fundamental rights embedded in EU society;
  • To support capacity building amongst relevant stakeholders.
