We are pleased to host the fourth in a series of events by LINKS Europe and The Hague Humanity Hub, which aim to rethink approaches to conflict prevention and resolution. Organised in collaboration with the European Eye on Radicalization, this event on 28 November will focus on issues of radicalisation and extremism and their direct link with violent conflict.
The event seeks to assess the causes of radicalisation within Europe and beyond, and how radicalisation destabilises nations and feeds into and results in violent conflict. It shall consider the response of governments and international organisations and assess how effective European and international coordination is in responding to radicalisation, as well as the role of civil society.
Our panel for this event will consist of:
– Amanda Paul – Senior Analyst at the European Policy Centre, Brussels and co-editor of a recent study “Guns and Glory: Criminality, imprisonment and jihadist extremism in Europe”
– Kamel Alkhatti – Writer and researcher specialised in studies of leftist and nationalist movements and parties in the Arabian Peninsula; movements and parties of Shiite political Islam; political commentator; Associate Fellow at King Faisal Center for Research and Islamic Studies
– Jonne Catshoek – Founder and Director of Elva Community Engagement, specialised in collecting, visualising and analysing reliable field data from hard-to-reach communities in conflict-affected areas for peace-building and stabilisation organisations
Each of the speakers will open with their thoughts and experiences in relation to the topic, before an open discussion in which we welcome and encourage the participation of the audience. The event will end with networking drinks for all those in attendance.
Sign in will open at 17:45 with the event starting at 18:00 sharp.– Prior registration for this event is necessary. If you register but are unable to make the event, we would very grateful if you could let us know –
The Hague Conversations on Conflict is a series of discussions, lectures, workshops and networking events launched by LINKS Europe in association with The Hague Humanity Hub, in June 2019. Its aim is to provide a forum where the changing nature of war and conflict can be analysed and assessed, together with the responses of international society.
