ISD has launched a new report on what works in countering extremist narratives online. This report outlines the findings of a research project conducted by the Institute between December 2012 and March 2013. Commissioned by Public Safety Canada, it provides an overview of the efforts made to push back on extremist content online, or ‘counter-narratives’. This was launched at an event held in ISD’s offices entitled ‘The Limits to Censorship? Tackling Extremist Propaganda Online’ which brought together academic experts, community activists and those from government working on these issues.
ISD has launched a new research report presenting the findings from ISD’s project ‘Integration: What Works?,’ funded by Open Society Foundations. The report is based on 18 months of research and dialogue with policymakers, trusts and foundations, and civil society organisations in four case study countries – Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden and the UK. It offers practical insights into what is being done on the ground, a series of detailed case studies, and a fresh approach to programming and evaluation of integration.
Urban expansion, development of creative industries, higher education, social integration... How can Europe and China learn from each other in these areas? And what impact do the media have on related policy processes? These issues were explored during the third Europe-China Media Exchange in Nanjing, 20-27 October 2013. This project is funded by the Robert Bosch Stiftung.
Over the course of the coming months, ISD’s Engaging Turkey Initiative will be producing a number of briefing papers and holding a series of consultations with government figures from the three constituencies. It will also host the second meeting of the Task Force, in Berlin in December. The Engaging Turkey Initiative is run in partnership with the Brookings Institution, and with the generous support of the Carnegie Corporation of New York.
