Influencing Policy Makers

Work on intercultural trends research helps embed an evidence-based approach to programming and policy-making at the local, national and regional level. The Foundation, in partnership with leading polling organisations (Gallup, Ipsos-MORI), conducts the only comparative analyses of its kind on the evolution of perceptions, values and behaviours in the Mediterranean: the “Anna Lindh Trends Report”. From its research and evaluation in the field, the Foundation takes local insight to international policymakers, providing unique understanding on conflict dynamics and policy responses to countering extremism or the social impact of a refugee crisis. It is represented on various inter-agency bodies such as the steering group for the Global Study on Youth, Peace and Security mandated by the UN Security Council.
