The rise of polarisation and radicalisation in Europe - Tackling all forms of violent extremism at the local level

Most recently, policy and media attention around the issue of radicalisation has mainly been centred on one of the multiple forms this phenomenon can take: Islamist extremism. This focus is a result of recent terrorist attacks, the majority of which have been proven to be linked with this form of extremism. Indeed, other forms of extremism, widely triggered by polarisation and this “us and them” logic, such as far-right wing violent movements, might be overlooked from a preventive perspective.

During this seminar, different interventions will help to understand both the current situation in Europe regarding this potential vicious circle between radicalisation and polarisation, and the need to develop a holistic approach to tackle all forms of extremism. Several European local initiatives will be presented to illustrate the latter. Moreover, a panel session will be dedicated to the current Italian strategy against radicalisation and the current challenges faced by local authorities in this field.
