EFSAS acquires membership to RAN's Civil Society Empowerment Programme


The European Foundation for South Asian Studies (EFSAS) is glad to announce its membership to the Civil Society Empowerment Programme (CSEP), which is coordinated by the Radicalisation Awareness Network (RAN) Centre of Excellence, and is funded by the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Migration and Home Affairs. The CSEP establishes a consortium of various civil society organisations committed to campaigning against radicalisation and violent extremism. The CSEP platform empowers these different groups to provide effective alternatives to the messages coming from violent extremists and terrorists, as well as ideas that counter extremist- and terrorist propaganda. Through the CSEP, the EU is committed to capacity building, training, partnering civil society organisations with internet and social media companies, and supporting campaigns designed to reach vulnerable individuals and those at risk of radicalisation and recruitment by extremists.
