The PROSECUW-consortium is very happy and proud to finally present the Transnational Report as a result from Work Package 2. In the report, the PROSECUW-consortium did a research on the current situation of the protection of places of worship. The report consists of: a desk research, an online survey and two meetings of focus groups that took place in all partner countries. The report shows what the current governments are already doing to make places of worship safer, how religious communities perceive safety at their ...........
places of worship and what their suggestions are to make these places safer. The report supports the ideas of the PROSECUW-project, namely the ideas of more and better communication, education and exchange between the people involved. The complete report and all results will soon be available on the PROSECUW website. Following the results, the consortium has started work on developing an online training for law enforcement agents, religious leaders, civil society organisations, and policy-makers.
