Project description:

A tailored programme of activities providing safe, neutral spaces for local authorities and the communities they serve to enter into dialogue and rethink radicalisation. This programme features: blended seminars and community workshops with expert input; single identity activities with youth groups; facilitated Q&As with officials; and other participatory activities delivered in local communities.

The Community Dialogue approach raises awareness of radicalisation while providing a carefully cultivated spaced for constructive airing of grievances, with a view to depolarising and localising the solutions to the controversial local issues that drive radicalisation and the national agendas designed to prevent it.

Deliverables:

Trained ‘community champions’ are one of the outcomes that can arise from these programmes.
