Confronting Violent Extremism in the Euro-Mediterranean


Over 150 researchers and experts from research centres and think tanks as well as policy makers from over 20 European and Southern and Eastern Mediterranean countries have debated in Barcelona the scope of the threat of violent extremism in the Euro-Mediterranean region and how to confront it. The debates took place on 1-2 June in Barcelona as part of the EuroMeSCo Annual Conference.

Three plenary sessions and several parallel sessions analysed violent extremism in the Euro-Mediterranean region: its origins, catalysing factors, scope, ways to combat it and links with other phenomena such as islamophobia or authoritarianism.
