Conference with Professor Olivier Roy on radicalisation in Europe [fr]
Olivier Roy, renowned French political scientist and specialist of Islam, Professor at the European University Institute in Florence, gave a talk at the embassy on April 29th on the phenomenon of radicalisation in Europe.
This conference, organised jointly with Critical Xchange, and entitled "Radicalisation in Europe : A Home-Grown Phenomenon or a Spill Over of the Middle East Conflicts ?" gathered close to 80 participants and led to interesting discussions on the various dimensions of radicalisation, both in France and in other affected European countries, and on the elements of comparison with the prevailing situation in Southeast Asia.
We would like to thank our partners Critical Xchange and its president, Dr. Nawab Osman, who was Prof. Roy’s discussant, for organising this conference with us.
