This is an online meeting that will take place on 23-24 September (09:00-13:30 CET).
For the upcoming digital study visit to Australia, we are currently looking for interested and suitable practitioners.
This study visit, hosted by the Victoria University, will focus on two topics.
Day one will evolve around the topic of far right extremism in Australia, where we will gain insights from the local government level, the academic level and the police level.
On day two, we will learn about CVE in Practice (regarding policing, prisons and community). A case management tool, which was developed in cooperation with university, police and civil society actors, will be discussed. Different efforts engaging communities and families, as well as the Board of Imams Victoria will be presented and discussed.
The study visit aims to increase participants’ knowledge through exchanges with actors working in this field. Furthermore, it aims to cross-check experiences and the theoretical knowledge produced in Europe in recent years against the realities developing in Australia.
Call for participants
We are currently looking for first-line practitioners who have experience in the fields of right wing extremism as well as multi-agency cooperation in CVE or are keen to learn more on these topics. To find the best-suited participants, we would like to ask you to answer the following questions when sharing your interest to participate:
- How does your work relate to right wing extremism? Are you working directly with violent right wing extremists (VRWE)?
- Who coordinates the activities related to VRWE in your country?
- What challenges do you face when it comes to multi-agency coordination of the activities related to extremism?
- Do you work with a case management tool? Who Is responsible for the risk assessment?
- What are your 3 key questions that you would wish to ask participants in this study visit?
Even though a limited number of participants can be accepted to this meeting, the input gathered from all applicants will be analysed, gathered and anonymised, and used to enrich the discussions and deliverables of the meeting.
If you are interested in participating at this meeting, elaborate on these questions before 14 September by sending your answers to Florian Reimers. We will invite participants based on this information. Please keep in mind that we only invite a limited number of participants to this meeting to ensure valuable exchange and interaction, so participation is not guaranteed.
If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to contact Florian Reimers.
