Co-funded by the European Union, the project “Local Institutions Against Violent Extremism II” (LIAISE 2) seeks to strengthen the capacities of local and regional European authorities to prevent and tackle the issue of radicalisation leading to violent extremism.
LIAISE 2 gathers European cities and regions and develops cooperation throughout Europe within a dedicated network. This approach is in line with the alliance of European cities against violent extremism that was initiated jointly by Efus and the Congress of Local and Regional Authorities of the Council of Europe.
Led by Efus, LIAISE 2 gathers 29 partner organisations in 10 countries, 18 cities and three regions, as well as four national Forums for urban security and three thematic non-governmental organisations.
In May, LIASE 2 had its first launch meeting in Bordeaux, followed by an European Conference on “European cities facing radicalization: communication and counter-narratives.”
