“Rising extremism, radicalisation and xenophobia in the fight against terrorism: Building inclusive societies as a cure / The need for collective action”

The Committee of Ministers held a thematic debate on “Rising extremism, radicalisation and xenophobia in the fight against terrorism: Building inclusive societies as a cure / The need for collective action” on 15 March 2016.

The Conference of INGOs submitted a written contribution to this debate in answering the following questions :

What challenges are facing your NGO in its actions to impede extremism and xenophobia?

Inclusion is now the focal point of the political agendas of international bodies, is this an opportunity for your NGO?

Have you noticed, for example, that the actions of your NGO have been seen in a more favourable light by national and international donors?

22 INGOs sent their contributions and Anna Rurka, President of the Conference of INGOs, submitted them to the Committee of Ministers.

The CoE and NGOs

The Council of Europe’s work benefits extensively from contacts and co-operation with the dynamic elements of society, as represented by NGOs. One of the main challenges currently facing the Organisation is to strengthen NGOs and civil society and to develop participatory democracy on a pan-European basis.
