ECR2P-Budapest Report and roundtable discussion: Capabilities of the Visegrad Group in preventing extremism.

On June 23, 2017, the Budapest Centre for Mass Atrocities Prevention presented the final Report of the V4 Task Force: “Capabilities of the Visegrad Group in Preventing Extremism” during the conference hosted by the Hungarian Institute for Foreign Affairs and Trade (IFAT).

During the conference, experts coming from Hungary, the Slovak Republic, Poland and the Czech Republic, shared the empirical findings of their desk and on-field research, outlining the challenges the Visegrad countries face when confronting with the consequences of the 2015 refugee crisis, which increased social tensions and fostered isolationist sentiments and xenophobia across the region.
