Preventing Violent Extremism and Radicalisation: Webinar on Indicators for Good Governance

Dates:
  • Wed 23 Sep 2020 12.00 - 14.00
  Add to Calendar 2020-09-23 12:00 2020-09-23 14:00 Europe/Paris Preventing Violent Extremism and Radicalisation: Webinar on Indicators for Good Governance

Europe has grown increasingly polarised in recent years. This polarisation has expressed itself most vividly through a rise in violent extremism attributed to religion and ideology. Significant efforts have been made to address these challenges. But policymakers are struggling to identify the root causes of radicalisation and come up with effective policy responses without infringing upon fundamental rights.  

Three EU-funded research projects – GREASE, BRaVE (both Horizon 2020) and BRIDGE (ISF-P) - have produced different but complementary sets of indicators that can help us monitor and assess how well different types of policies and practices are performing. 

• The GREASE indicators focus on the governance of religious diversity with a view to preventing religiously inspired radicalisation in Europe and elsewhere.

• The BRaVE indicators highlight conditions in Europe, showing how polarised or resilient a given country is. 

• The BRIDGE indicators are intended to support local authorities in assessing and mitigating polarisation processes, aiming to improve the capacity of municipalities to monitor and prevent.

Each project is developing a practical toolkit on the basis of its indicators. These will be presented as works in progress and discussed at our joint workshop. The event is aimed at government actors, European institutions, civil society organisations and academic experts. Our goal is to identify the potential benefits and pitfalls of our toolkits so they can be optimized for use by local and national authorities as well as researchers and NGOs.

To receive the ZOOM link to attend the webinar please REGISTER ONLINE by 21 September.
