In this special edition of the RAN Practitioners Update, we focus on the annual highlight that is the RAN’s High Level Conference and RAN Practitioners’ Plenary. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, both events will be taking place online, but their importance is more pronounced than ever.
This year has been one of, if not the most, challenging in RAN’s 10-year history. RAN has had to rise to the challenge of COVID-19, tackling emerging threats that have only been exacerbated and accelerated by the pandemic, such as the proliferation of disinformation and conspiracy narratives, the emergence of more extreme and violent narratives (both left and right), mental health and increased digitalisation.
As Europe slowly begins to emerge from the pandemic, this year’s High Level Conference and Plenary will look to straddle between two areas: looking back at the RAN’s ten-year foundation and its successes, whilst also looking ahead to the next decade and the future of P/CVE.
