Preventing Radicalisation and Terrorism in Europe – A comparative analysis of policies

We are glad to announce the publication of a new book – “Preventing Radicalisation and Terrorism in Europe – A comparative analysis of policies” – which relies on the experience developed within the EC-funded TRIVALENT (Terrorism pReventIon Via rAdicaLisation countEr-NarraTive) project. The book – prefaced by Prof. Luigi Moccia (TRIVALENT Project Coordinator), authored by Prof. Maria Luisa Maniscalco and Prof. Valeria Rosato (Università degli Studi Roma Tre, Italy) with the contribution of Dr. Santina Musolino (Università degli Studi Roma Tre, Italy), Prof. Cindy du Bois (Royal Military Academy, Belgium) and Dr. Willy Bruggerman (President of the Belgian Federal Police Board, Belgium) – offers an updated and critical assessment of the main anti-terrorism and anti-radicalisation policies implemented by five European countries (Belgium, France, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom), as well as of their strengths, weaknesses, peculiarities and differences, identifying possible evolutionary lines and proposing a series of recommendations for policy-makers in their efforts to tackle the radicalisation phenomenon. Z&P’s team – composed by Ing. Alessandro Zanasi, Dr. Giovanni Vassallo and Dr. Angelo Rollo – has also relied on the expertise gained in the EC-funded CICERO (CounternarratIve Campaign for prEventing RadicalisatiOn) project to provide a relevant analysis on the role of civil society in policies to prevent radicalisation and terrorism in Europe.

Interview of Sheik Prof. Kamal BORAIQA ABDELASALM

Sheik Prof. Kamal BORAIQA ABDELASALM

Coordinator:
AL AZHAR OBSERVATORY FOR COMBATTING TERRORISM

Head:
OBSERVATION AND SUGGESTION COMMITTEE AT THE EGYPTIAN FAMILY HOUSE

New York – October 5, 2018
“Education is one of the most important and powerful elements for countering the jihadist narrative”

AbdAllah Massimo Cozzolino, Chairman of the Advisory Board – Trivalent, interviewed Prof. Kamal BORAIQA ABDELASALM, coordinator of the Observatory of radicalization at the University of Al Azahar, in a while of the 2nd Conference on Cultural Rapprochement between United States of America and Muslim world, New York, 4- 5 ottobre 2018.
The Observatory of Al Azhar University at local, regional and even international levels has been improving significantly since the last presidential election in 2014 – due to the fact that is a strategic partner in the battle against the rising tide of Islamic terror and the religious rhetoric of terrorist organizations. The Al Azhar Institute, which was established by the Fatimids in the year 972, is considered to be the most promise and influential educational institution in the Sunni Muslim world since 1172.
The observatory studies the drivers of radicalization and extreme violence in various contexts, in their various forms and in their political and religious dimensions, in order to make this eminently complex phenomenon intelligible without reducing it to “radical Islamism”.
The Observatory aims to analyze the urban geography of violent radicalization through an in-depth approach to family processes and a history of difficult districts, as well as to compare the public policies implemented at the local and national levels.
