The European Foundation for Democracy (EFD) is delighted to invite you to this Policy Dialogue, in partnership with the European Policy Centre (EPC).
Attacks perpetrated by extremist groups in Europe demonstrate growing divisions in society across Europe, which must be addressed. In this context, young people are key targets for recruitment by extremist group and among the most vulnerable victims. Teachers and educators are on the frontline of current efforts to prevent the most vulnerable from becoming radicalised and embracing violence. They play a crucial role in educating young people to develop critical thinking and to become resilient to violent ideologies thus ensuring their inclusion in social and civic life, irrespective of their socio-economic, religious or ethnic background.
This Policy Dialogue will bring together key policy makers and experts in the field of education and prevention of radicalisation. The panel will discuss measures put in place by the European Union and the member states to address this challenge and assess the way forward in building a more cohesive society.
