Conference in Vilnius on Anti-Semitism, Radicalisation and Violent Extremism

Lithuanian NGO Programme operator Human Rights Monitoring Institute is organizing a conference on Anti-Semitism, Radicalisation and Violent Extremism. The event will take place on 30 September, 2015 in Vilnius.

The event aims to contribute to deeper discussions among the NGO Fund Operators, project promoters, academia, civil society organisations and political leaders on countering anti-Semitism, as well as radicalisation and violent extremism.

Shortly, the conference will discuss the contemporary forms of anti-Semitism, analyse the root causes, trends and dynamics of hate crimes, radicalisation and violent extremism that keeps spreading across Europe and beyond. Participants shall also discuss what individuals are at the highest risk of becoming radical and violent, and what actions are needed to prevent that. With the input of NGOs, researchers, as well as representatives of state institutions and international organisations active in this field, the participants will aim to identify useful and necessary steps that could be taken in the future in order to address the issue and fight these so immense threats. 

The participants of the event will include experts of human rights, practitioners working in the field of inclusion, de-radicalisation, prevention of extremism, as well as representatives of international organisations and NGOs.
