Members and partners of the Anna Lindh Foundation are invited to join online the 2016 "Security Jam", a unique global brainstorm to develop innovative solutions to the world's pressing problems, running from 25th to 28th April 2016.
This year's edition of the "Security Jam" will feed into the EU’s thinking on a new Global Strategy on Foreign and Security Policy, and participants will be able to engage and exchange directly with Ministers of Foreign Affairs and Defence, NGO leaders and thousands of experts around the world on security, human rights and development from government, international organisations, NGOs, academia, business and the media to develop innovative solutions to global security challenges.
On 26th April at 13:00 CET, the President of the Anna Lindh Foundation (Élisabeth Guigou) has been invited to deliver an initial statement on "Answers to radicalisation and violent extremism”, with a focus on the role of intercultural dialogue, civil society and youth in challenging extremist narratives. During recent months, the Foundation has been pioneering a new research and development project ("Debate to Action") which has exposed new approaches to regional youth programming and new thinking to tackling extremism in the long-term in the Mediterranean region.
The Anna Lindh Foundation is partnering with Friends of Europe on the 2016 Security Jam initiative as part of a new strategic partnership aimed at working with policy-makers and opinion-leaders to redefine and reaffirm the role of dialogue in the times of crisis in the Euro-Mediterranean region.
