This webinar aims to disseminate the recommendations and best practices from this meeting in Copenhagen to a wider police audience via a short webinar. Additionally, the objective of this webinar is to help police understand the balance between dealing with the challenges in facilitating new escalated and sometimes radicalising protests.
