“Cities can get down to the root causes of radicalisation, creating initiatives that promote a greater sense of community and alleviate tensions between residents. Our findings show that successful approaches are those that go beyond security concerns to address broader societal needs, such as opportunities for young people, better dialogue and greater citizen participation. Many cities are fairly new to anti-radicalisation activities, so EUROCITIES offers an outlet for them to share and get inspired by what is being done across Europe.”
