Preventing violent radicalisation

In 2006 and 2007, four studies were undertaken on behalf of the European Commission to analyse in depth the problem of radicalisation leading to terrorism from various angles that were considered important for the EU's policy-making in the area. The studies are comparative in nature and based on fieldwork and case studies. CI produced two of the four reports, Beliefs, ideologies and narratives of violent radicalisation and Best practices in cooperation initiatives between authorities and civil society with a view to the prevention of and response to violent radicalisation, which are now available in our publications section.

Understanding Muslim Ethnic Communities

The Change Institute was commissioned by Communities and Local Government to undertake research on England's diverse Muslim communities. The result is a fourteen volume series of publications on thirteen Muslim 'communities' grouped by country of heritage. The publications provide a starting point for understanding the diversity of England's Muslim communities and highlight issues both common and unique for different Muslim ethnic populations.

Kick Racism Out of Sports, Schools and Society (KROSSS)
The Change Institute is pleased to announce its involvement in KROSSS, a Comenius funded initiative within the framework of the European Commission’s Lifelong Learning Programme.

KROSSS is a collaborative 3 year project that brings together teacher training organisations, sports clubs and other specialist agencies in the field to develop knowledge, resources and training opportunities to enable educators to harness the power of sport in order to create positive influences and connections at cultural and sociological levels.

The consortia consists of organisations and individuals that have worked together to address racism, inequalities in education and intercultural learning for many years, along with new collaborators that have the necessary expertise and experience required for the delivery of the programme.

Intercultool are you interculturally competent?

The Change Institute is currently participating in a programme of work funded by the European Commission as part of its Life Long Learning Programme to develop a framework model of ‘intercultural’ competence that is based on the needs of professionals involved in culturally diverse or ‘intercultural’ situations. The project describes ‘Interculturalism’ as ‘sharing and learning across a culture(s) that promotes understanding, equality, harmony and justice in a diverse society’.
