The Congress of Local and Regional Authorities of the Council of Europe and
the European Forum for Urban Security
would like to invite you to the
Local authorities’ conference on the prevention of radicalisation leading to violent extremism
hosted by the Mayor of Rotterdam
18 November 2015
Local authorities are on the front line when it comes to the prevention of radicalisation leading to terrorism and violent extremism. Repression alone does not solve the problem. Prevention, signalling and providing programmes to help (potential) extremists to abandon violent extremism are also necessary. These actions must be organised at the local level and mobilise civil society.
The Congress of Local and Regional Authorities of the Council of Europe and the European Forum for Urban Security want to unite European mayors and other elected officials in order to make their needs heard and to help them strengthen their capacity to prevent and deal with violent extremism.
The programme and the registration form will be available shortly.
