The latest dilemmas and trends in the field of preventing violent extremism, various views on radicalisation, de-radicalisation and re-socialisation, the opportunities and challenges of various approaches, and the various roles and perspectives of stakeholders active in the field are all covered in this programme. Through lectures, workshops, panel discussions and work visits the participants will exchange ideas and experiences with experts in the field.
