Webinar: Right-Wing Extremism - Local Lessons and Transnational Dimensions
This RAN webinar will address the emergence of a new transnational (cross-border) violent right-wing extremism (VRWE) movement and its implications for practitioners working on a local level in the area of preventing and countering violent extremism (P/CVE). After discussing the latest relevant research on the transnational dimension of VRWE, the meeting will focus on lessons learned and good practices on how relevant activities of right-wing extremists can be identified, understood, prevented or countered for local P/CVE practitioners.
The target audience are public administration officials (including from tax offices, building authorities and youth welfare offices), police and law enforcement officials and practitioners who are interested in exchanging on the following issues:
- Commercial events (e.g. concerts, festivals, mixed-martial arts) hosted by VRWE;
- Commercial activities (e.g. mail-order business/merchandise) by VRWE;
- Multi-agency cooperation on how to effectively deal with VRWE events or marches;
- Alexander Ritzmann (RAN/Counter Extremism Project (CEP))
- Maximilian Kreter (Hannah-Arendt-Institute Dresden, Germany)
- Josefin Bergström (The Swedish Centre for Prevention of Violent Extremism , Sweden)
- Hana Šebová (Extremist Screening Centre, National Counter Terrorism Unit, Slovakia)
This online meeting will take place on 19 March 2021 (15:00-16:30 CET) via WebEx. Attendance is limited.
