ISD has launched a new report on the key challenges and lessons learned across 10 EU member states (Sweden, UK, the Netherlands, Norway, Finland, Denmark, Germany, Poland, Hungary, Slovak Republic). This report is based on one year of field research in all 10 countries. It involved interviews with over 100 inspirational individuals, from those writing National Action Plans to frontline professionals carrying out one-to-one interventions. The report offers 10 recommendations for European policy makers.
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.
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.
ISD’s Engaging Turkey Initiative has coordinated a number of high-level meetings and produced a series of briefing papers with the goal of identifying and fostering concrete areas of cooperation between the US, Europe and Turkey. Most recently, the Task Force met for the second time in Berlin and discussed a wide-ranging set of issues including energy, counter-terrorism, economic cooperation, and regional developments in the Middle East. The project is run in partnership with Brookings and with the generous support of the Carnegie Corporation of New York.
