Venue: Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom, Avenue de Cortenbergh 71, 1000 Brussels

The attacks in Paris and Istanbul have shaken Europe to its core.  While stories of failed integration in places like the Brussels borough of Molenbeek abound, there are also stories of Muslim communities elsewhere in Europe where radical Islamist views have never gained foothold. What are these communities doing right? What can civil society do to help these communities flush out the poison of radicalism? Is there a role for the European Union in preventing radicalization?

Join our panelists as they discuss the work their organisations are doing and what the way forward can be to make sure that radical Islam has no place in the hearts and minds of young Europeans.
