High level radicalisation experts meet

The latest research from the Agency fed discussions from the first meeting of the Subgroup to the High Level Commission Expert Group on Radicalisation on 28 September in Brussels.

The Agency spoke about its recent findings, drawing on Muslim respondents’ experiences of discrimination, their experiences of policing and trust in the authorities from its EU-MIDIS II survey. EU Member States, Commission services, representatives of other EU institutions and relevant EU Agencies discussed the issues of prisons and reintegration, local dimension and multi-agency approaches to radicalisation, groups vulnerable to radicalisation, and exchange of information on radicalised individuals. Proposals for future cooperation mechanisms and structures were also discussed.
