This dialogue aimed to provide a forum for frank, open and focused discussion of the relationship between religion and radicalisation which may lead to violence; an opportunity to discuss the role of religious actors in preventing and countering radicalisation; and a space in which to outline a range of specific policies and programmatic responses to radicalisation based on or incorporating religious actors.
In light of a recent focus on home-grown extremism in Europe, this topic has a particular urgency. It also aimed to facilitate and build upon existing networks between North America and Europe in this area.
