High-level conference on violent extremism to take place in Brussels

On January 29, the Commission will host a High-level Conference to bolster the efforts of the EU and the EU countries to broaden engagement in preventing violent extremism and support local actors to build more resilient societies. Ministers and other high level policy makers are invited to discuss aspects of radicalisation with the members of the Radicalisation Awareness Network (RAN). The overarching theme of the Conference will be "empowering local actors to prevent violent extremism". The outcomes of the event will help to shape and inform the development of new EU policy recommendations for 2013.
