Summary

The European Foundation for Democracy, TRENDS Research & Advisory and Human Rights Without Frontiers, in cooperation with Marijana Petir MEP (EPP/HR), would like to invite you to a panel discussion on 28th November, 10:30am-12:30pmDrivers and catalysts of radicalisation in Europe and the impact on the EU’s neighbourhood policy.

The discussion will focus on exploring the drivers and catalysts of radicalisation in Europe and the impact of the phenomenon on EU neighbourhood countries including, in particular, the Western Balkans. We are aware of how extremist groups radicalise and recruit vulnerable young people to fight for terrorist organisations like Daesh; the speakers will discuss other, less well know drivers of radicalisation and the recruitment tactics deployed by these groups and individuals. There will be a special focus on radicalisation in south-east Europe and the Western Balkans.

RSVP to [email protected]. If you need access to the European Parliament, please include name, surname, nationality, type of ID and ID number by 5:00pm Wednesday, 22nd November.
