[Webinar]: Radicalization and Violent Extremism Across Borders: An Ongoing Threat
The persistent threat of radicalization and violent extremism is highlighting the vulnerability of our societies today to the challenges of intolerance, hatred and fear. Radicalization is a reflection of societal polarization, as well as a reflection of deep and rapid changes of perceptions, values and behaviour, where violence is becoming an acceptable tool for solving conflicts.

The Euro-Atlantic Council of Slovenia, the Politics and Society Institute in Jordan and the Centre for European Perspective in Slovenia have joined together in order to open up a discussion on the threat of radicalization and violent extremism in Slovenia, Kosovo and Jordan and their wider regions.
The experts aimed to:
• Underline potential similarities, differences and connections between violent extremism in these countries and their respective regions;
• Address how to reduce the risk of individual indoctrination to violent extremism and radicalization; and
• Proposed ideas on how to deal with these challenges.
