Join us at our Webinar with Mandy Sanghera on Combatting The Mind Set of Radicalisation in our modern age.
Since the emergence of so-called ‘Islamic State’ (ISIS) in the Spring and Summer of 2014, the cases of young Muslims from Europe joining ISIS in Syria have garnered considerable media attention. And especially the fact that dozens of young women have decided to migrate to the Middle East and join ISIS has raised many questions.
Why are young people becoming radicalised in this way. This Webinar discusses this issue and is associated with a Seminar being put on by the Local Government Information Unit (LGiU) and GlobalNet21 in July.
Mandy Sanghera will be presenting this Webinar. Mandy is a TV Presenter at Multiple Channel and a human rights activist. She is one of the most respected and sought-after experts on forced marriages and honour crimes. Has worked with Central government, European parliament and the United Nation. Mandy is regularly involved writing articles in the national press to raise awareness of abuse in the name of honour.
Radicalisation can be seen as something linked with culture and discontent and Mandy will discuss this with us and reply to questions and comments from those attending:
- What are the reasons for which young British women decide to leave their homes and join a terrorist group in a war zone?
- What do we know about their motivations and expectations?
- Once with ISIS, what are their roles within the organisation?
- Why have ISIS decided to encourage women to join them from abroad?
- What can we do to counter and prevent this trend?
- Why are prisons and universities breeding grounds to radicalism?
- What can we do at grassroots and within the community to tackle radicalism ?
- How is prevent strategy working in practice ? Eg channel policies , safeguarding etc
- Why do some. Communities feel multiculturalism is not working in the UK ?
The Local Government Information Unit (LGiU) is running a seminar in collaboration with GlobalNet21 in July to discuss this problem and to consider what action local authorities can take to engage with others to address it.
