Three European projects CHAMPIONs, MINDb4ACT and BRAVE funded under the H2020 and ISF-P European Commission Programmes are pleased to invite you to register to a 2-day joint conference “Radicalisation in Central and Eastern Europe – trends, challenges and opportunities to counteract”, which will take place in Poznan, Poland on 19 and 20 May 2020.

The conference aims to continue a dialogue on trends in various forms of radicalisation in the countries of Central and Eastern Europe and the challenges they bring. The goal is also to exchange experiences, good practices in counteracting this phenomenon, present the latest research results and the essence of multi-agency cooperation in this field.


The formula of the closed-door conference consists of three parts:

  • Policy Event, high-level discussion on “Sharing the insights on the Central and Eastern Europe approaches in radicalisation and violent extremism” on 19th May (1st day);

  • Exhibition area for research projects and institutions operating in the field of preventing radicalisation in different formats on 19th and 20th May (1st and 2nd day).

The conference addresses a wide range of practitioners involved in preventing and counteracting radicalisation at various levels throughout Europe; but, also to policymakers, local and central administration, public institutions (e.g. social welfare, courts, probation office), researchers, the non-governmental sector and other entities interested in this topic.
