The Radicalisation Awareness Network: Assessing its impact and potential


Since its creation in 2011, the Radicalisation Awareness Network (RAN) has become an essential tool for EU policies against radicalisation. Through the knowledge hub of the RAN Centre of Excellence it has been supporting and shaping the EU agenda in preventing and addressing radicalisation. At the same time, RAN’s thematic Working Groups have been connecting practitioners across Europe in the common effort to fight radicalisation via the exchange of good practice.

This Policy Dialogue brought together the most relevant policy interlocutors engaged in the functioning of RAN to discuss its impact and potential. It was also an occasion to review the recent report by the European Court of Auditors on ‘Tackling radicalisation that leads to terrorism’ and, in particular, to discuss to what extent changes have been implemented and the way forward for the network.
