Monday, 26 April, 2021 - 14:00 to 15:00

On 26 April 2021, from 14:00 to 15:00 (CEST), Policy Cloud is hosting a webinar on Policies Against Radicalisation, an important problem in recent times in Europe.

The problem of radicalisation is very high on the European agenda as increasing numbers of young European radicals return from Syria and use the internet to disseminate propaganda.

To enable policymakers to design policies that address radicalisation effectively, Policy Cloud consortium partner Maggioli collects data from social media and other sources. The full range of Policy Cloud services is used to transform the raw data into actionable knowledge of practical value to policy creators.

The webinar includes the following topics:

  • Pilots use case 
  • Technology solutions
  • EU policy context 
  • Round Table Discussion
