BRaVE - Building Resilience Against Violent Extremism and Polarisation

The BRaVE project aims to bring together a broad range of expertise from those researching and working to build resilience against violent extremism and polarisation.

This project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement number 822189

Europe has grown increasingly polarised in recent years. At a time of great global uncertainty, European societies have been fractured by movements hostile to democratic norms. How can we understand this rise of polarisation across Europe? What can European countries learn from the studies, policies and programmes implemented so far to counter violent extremism? And what tools can we develop to build more resilient communities?

The BRaVE Project is made up of a consortium of experts from universities and civil society organisations from across Europe, exploring how and why violent extremism develops and what we can do to best respond to it.
