As there is a thin line between radicalisation and violent extremism, the best response according to RAN is to plant seeds of doubt in the minds of at risk persons though dialogue with first line practitioners who have the potential to appeal to their hearts and minds. The interview concludes with Ramadan saying that as the world becomes more interconnected, events in places like the Middle East will have an even greater impact on Europe, but RAN will equally continue to work to counter the threat of violent extremism.

It shows how anyone can get involved in extremism. Although he always fit in socially in Sheffield, the English city he grew up in, he always felt a bit different due to his religion and ethnicity. Then he met the Hizb ut-Tahr group and was drawn to their radical, anti-establishment narrative. They offered him a sense of belonging and political direction. After a while however, Rashad began to realise that their ideology was dangerous and non-religious. Together with other like-minded Muslims, he went on to set up Centri, an organisation dealing with de-radicalisation and counter extremism efforts, where he continues to challenge extremist narratives in favour of a more tolerant, less politicised interpretation of Islam.

Regional and local authorities are responsible for approximately one third of all public expenditure and two thirds of all public investment in the EU, with both of these figures increasing significantly over the past decade. Moreover, regions and cities play a leading role in terms of implementing and co-financing EU programmes, particularly the European Structural and Investment Funds. Against this background, the Committee of the Regions (CoR) organised its second conference on the state of sub-national public finances. The conference discussed two key issues: •EU economic governance, the Europe 2020 strategy and the impact on regional and local budgets; •Trends in fiscal decentralisation Tue, 21 Oct 2014 22:00:00 GMT http://ec.europa.eu/avservices/video/player.cfm?ref=I094378&sitelang=en EuroPCom 2014: Imag[in]ing Europe http://ec.europa.eu/avservices/video/player.cfm?ref=I094374&sitelang=en Looking at the last EU elections, it seems the European message is not getting to the ears of citizens. Is it maybe the wrong message? The wrong messengers? And what to do about it? This was the main theme of the 5th Conference on Public Communication (EuroPCom) that was held in Brussels with 700 communication experts over the past 2 days.
