"How to combat radicalisation and terrorism: prevention tools and shared knowledge in the Mediterranean and European space"
3-4 December, Ismaili Centre, Lisbon

Lisbonne Forum 

The Lisbon Forum 2015 was developed along three main axes:

  • Rule of Law and Democratic responses: A bulwark against radicalisation
  • Preventing radicalisation through education and training
  • Empowering young people and women to prevent and combat radicalisation

Education can play a key role in developing and maintaining intercultural values in democracy – no democracy can be built on ignorance, therefore education should seek to promote democratic, active and responsible citizenship.
Culture can serve as a lever to promote understanding, respect and interdependence and should be central to any reflection by governments and international organisations.
Young people and women have an essential role to play in promoting peace and conflict management.
