2016-02-04 Ukraine: Contemporary Radicalisation Trends and Their Implications for Europe


Contemporary Radicalisation Trends and Their Implications for Europe

Description of the project offered: 
Department of Political Science and International Relations of Lviv Politechnic National University would like to offer cooperation in creating a project for researching radicalisation trends in Europe. 
Since its creation on the basis of the Department of Political Science in 2013 our Department develops research in the field of world politics and international relations.
We offer cooperation in researching radicalisation processes and finding ways to overcome the causes of radicalisation of modern political system. Today the issue of radicalisation is extremely important because of the numerous separatist movements in and outside of Europe, activities of radical right-wing parties, activation of the Islamic state, etc. Last terrible events in Paris confirm the increasing of radical trends and the need to find ways to overcome them in order to prevent such tragedies with numerous innocent victims. 
The phenomenon of radicalisation requires detailed study both at the theoretical level (a study of extremist ideologies, the phenomena of xenophobia, anti-semitism, etc.) and the practical manifestations of these phenomena. That’s why this topic provides a broad range of issues requiring consideration.
The main objectives of the project are:
- to study the phenomenon of radicalisation, its forms causing violence, intolerance, terrorist attacks, hate crimes and racism;
- to examine reasons for strengthening radical tendencies in the modern world and their origin;
- to study the impact of current migration processes on the dynamics of radical tendencies in Europe;
- to identify opportunities to prevent violence and to reduce the processes of radicalisation;
- to promote tolerance, mutual understanding, respect for cultural, religious, ideological diversity and peaceful coexistence of identities in combination with political pluralism;
- to develop recommendations on finding effective political de-radicalization strategies, implementation of political measures for preventing radicalization processes and manifestations of violence in and outside of Europe.
