BRaVE BRaVE: Building Resilience against Violent Extremism and Polarisation

The BRaVE Project

Europe has grown increasingly polarised in recent years. At a time of great global uncertainty, European societies have been fractured by movements hostile to democratic norms. How can we understand this rise of polarisation across Europe? What can European countries learn from the studies, policies and programmes implemented so far to counter violent extremism? And what tools can we develop to build more resilient communities?

The BRaVE Project is made up of a consortium of experts from universities and civil society organisations from across Europe, exploring how and why violent extremism develops and what we can do to best respond to it.

Global Extremes and Religious Diversity

The BRaVE Project is proud to be working alongside and with the support of several other European research initiatives. Our closest working relationship is with the similarly Horizon2020-funded GREASE Project, ‘Radicalisation, Secularism and the Governance of Religion: Bringing together European and Asian Perspectives’. The project is also coordinated by Prof Anna Triandafyllidou and based at the European University Institute’s Global Governance Programme.

The projects have developed this joint booklet containing information about our work and findings, published by the European University Institute. Entitled ‘Global Extremes and Religious Diversity’, it explores our overlapping research on the governance of religion, radicalisation and violent extremism, polarisation and the building of resilience.

If you are interested in issues of religiously inspired violent radicalization and on the governance of religious diversity beyond Europe, you may want to check out our ‘sister’ project GREASE: Radicalisation, Secularism and the Governance of Religion: Bringing together European and Asian Perspectives (
