Training and workshops: Impact of Climate Change on Security Practitioners
Climate change is high on both national and European political agendas as all countries need to address the environmental challenges. With this workshop, we aim to focus some of this attention on immediate and future, but inevitable, impact of climate change on international and domestic security affairs and related policy implications. Climate change no longer is considered solely as an environmental issue thus its implications are considered in a variety of contexts stemming from social, through cultural, agricultural, industrial to economic. The documented effects of climate change like global average temperature increase, rise in sea levels, and altered weather patterns generate security consequences, presenting new challenges to societies like intercommunal tensions, changes in rates and types of crime, new legislations and questioning the methods and technology the policing should be performed by. Our ambition is to identify the most pressing trends and threats, and to propose actions that the research community can undertake to support the adaptation process.

Conferences and summits: InfoPoint conference: Rainbow Economy
Bruxelles
The EU is fully committed to addressing inequalities and challenges affecting LGBTIQ persons both within its borders and beyond. The EU actively condemns discriminatory laws, policies, and practices, including the criminalization of consenting same-sex relationships between adults. In all spheres of life, equality is advanced in EU external relations through the EU Action Plan on Human Rights and Democracy (2020-2024) and the European Commission's first ever LGBTIQ Equality Strategy 2020-2025 complemented by the "EU Guidelines to promote and protect the enjoyment of all human rights by LGBTI persons" for external action (2013). Furthermore, the EU Gender Action Plan 2020-2025 (GAP III) promotes equality for women and men in all their diversity through the approach of intersectionality. In this context, and on the occasion of Diversity Month and IDAHOBIT 2024, INTPA is organising a hybrid InfoPoint session on the Rainbow Economy. Its main aim is to reiterate the EU's commitment to advancing the human rights of LGBTIQ persons, and highlight perspectives on how to support the economic inclusion of LGBTIQ persons. This infopoint will complement the human rights discourse by highlighting the negative consequences that stigma, discrimination and exclusion have on economies. By doing so, the conference aims at giving voice to LGBTIQ activists and to partners who are implementing actions to drive economic inclusivity, economic growth, and ultimately realize economic fairness and social integration for the LGBTIQ community. The International Day against Homophobia, Transphobia, and Biphobia (IDAHOT) was created in 2004 to draw attention to the violence and discrimination experienced by lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex persons and all other persons with diverse sexual orientations, gender identity, or expressions, and sex characteristics. The date May 17th was chosen to commemorate the World Health Organization's decision in 1990 to remove homosexuality from the list of mental disorders. The theme of IDAHOT 2024 is 'No one left behind: equality, freedom and justice for all': at a time when hard-won advances for LGBTIQ communities around the globe are increasingly under threat, this year's IDAHOBIT theme is a call for unity: only through solidarity for each other will we create a world without injustice, where no one is left behind.However, around the world, LGBTIQ people face discrimination and exclusion which may limit their ability to reach their full potential in different areas of life, including education, employment, physical and mental health. As recent research suggests, the effects of stigma, discrimination and exclusion based on sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, and sex characteristics could be costing economies billions of dollars.According to the ILGA Europe 2024 annual review of the human rights situation of LGBTIQ people, LGBTIQ persons are disproportionately affected in times of crisis and are often socio-economically disadvantaged in specific ways. There is a continuing lack of awareness and lack of political will to address socio-economic inequalities for LGBTI people. The work of activists, human rights defenders, and other actors to protect LGBTIQ people and advance freedom and rights has been increasingly beleaguered by attacks and restrictions on civil society space. LGBTIQ human rights defenders have been targeted by increasing physical aggressions, threats, and hate campaigns. This is particularly challenging in a context where, in 2024, 64 countries have discriminatory legislations that criminalize private, consensual same-sex relationships - exposing individuals to the risk of arrest, prosecution, imprisonment, and, in twelve countries, the legal possibility of death penalty.The EU is a strong defender of the human rights of LGBTIQ persons globally. Equality and non-discrimination are part of EU core values, as emphasized in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the European Treaties, and the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights. Hence, the increasing EU engagement to act for the protection of such values, both at the political and operational level.The EU existing internal and external policies are based on a non-discriminatory approach and address multiple and intersecting forms of discrimination. The LGBTIQ equality strategy 2020-2025 sets out a series of measures to step up the EU's non-discrimination action, to mainstream LGBTIQ equality into all EU policies, legislation, and funding programs, and to amplify the voices of LGBTIQ people both within and outside the EU's borders. On the basis of its principles and policy framework, the EU supports civil society organisations working on the frontline to combat violence, hatred, and discrimination, and ensure that the human rights of LGBTIQ people are upheld in partner countries. This conference aims at highlighting the work of LGBTIQ activists and partners who are implementing actions to drive economic inclusivity, economic growth, and ultimately realize economic fairness and social integration for the LGBTIQ community. It also seeks to provide a space for EU Delegations to share their experiences and views on the current situation and on how to strengthen the human rights and economic inclusion of LGBTIQ persons.

Bruxelles
'Resonances' is the name of the JRC SciArt flagship initiative, which fosters collaborations between artists, scientists and policymakers. Its fourth edition (2022-2024) revolves around NaturArchy, which aims to reimagine our relationship with nature and the environment. The NaturArchy exhibition will open its doors on 24 May at iMAL, Art Center for Digital Cultures & Technology (Brussels) with a vernissage. It will be open for visits Wednesday to Friday from 10.00 to 18.00 (CEST) and Saturday to Sunday from 11.00 to 19.00 (CEST).It is produced by the JRC SciArt project in partnership with iMAL, and supported by the Belgian Presidency of the Council of the European Union.

This is done through artistic, scientific and legal expressions: intersecting science and law, reason and style, art and judgment, policy and imagination. After two years of deep inquiry, research and co-creation, which began with a summer school at the JRC in 2022 and continued with artistic residencies in 2023, these art and science works provocatively call to be contrasted with pieces of natural and cultural heritage. From global oceans to water flows, from contamination and bacteria to climate tipping points, pollinators, and landscapes of natural hazards; from natural and artificial intelligence to non-human values, forests, lands, soils, composting; from grief and mourning to rituals, wonder and collective action. This is the creation of 15 artists, working together with JRC researchers and the SciArt team, also involving EC policymakers with a keen interest in the topic. The result: nearly 50 people currently joining forces for NaturArchy.

Trust, however, is not a given, especially in a field where individuals might feel mistrusted and under surveillance by local and state authorities. The trust-building process has become more challenging while navigating times of global crises, economic hardship and polarisation fuelled by conspiracy narratives or disinformation, in which uncertainty prevails for a large number of people. This has led to a growing distrust towards institutions and those who represent them.Participants in this meeting will therefore jointly dive into the world of 'trust'. It has been reiterated during RAN meetings that this is one of the key pillars of the support provided by P/CVE first-line practitioners who work with radicalised individuals and their families (as well as any other work done by psychologists, social workers, counsellors). Factors that play an important role in this trust-building process are, for example, investing time, strategies for exploratory communication, and taking into account the perspective of the individual the practitioner works with (see here). For this last point, practitioners constantly need to self-reflect on their own biases, stay open-minded, be aware of the impact of their own world view and the perception of clients, and reflect on their role in the system/community they are working in/with. In turn, not reflecting about this could negatively impact the quality of the trust-building process.The meeting objectives are to:Exchange views on the challenges in the working process of P/CVE practitioners that can affect the trust-building process with the individuals they work with and their families.Exchange views on inspiring trust-building approaches.Explore how practitioners can reflect on their own perspectives and their unconscious biases and prejudices towards the people they work with.Discuss the supporting structures within organisations that can create a stable foundation for practitioners to enable a trust-building process.The deliverable will be a conclusion paper with inspiring examples to create a stable foundation for practitioners to build trust.In order to find the best suited participants, we would like to ask you to answer the following questions: Do you work in the field of P/CVE? Please elaborate on the type of work you are doing.What challenges do you encounter in the trust-building process that you would like to exchange on during the meeting?Do you specifically reflect on the role of your own worldview and possible unconscious biases due to your own context? If yes, please elaborate on how you do this. How do you build trust? What are the approaches/methods/practices you use? Please elaborate.Would you like to present something to the other participants during the meeting? (For example, a specific trust-building approach, a challenging case, or ways in which practitioners can reflect on their own role). If yes, please elaborate.How to registerIf you are interested in attending this meeting, please register here and answer the questions. We will invite participants based on this information. Please keep in mind that we only have a limited number of places available for this meeting to foster exchanges, so participation is not guaranteed.Please note that the meeting will be held in English.

Conferences and summits: Green Week 2024: Towards a water resilient Europe
Faced with recurrent water-related crises, this edition of the annual conference will debate what is needed to make the EU more water resilient, today and tomorrow. Water is a vital shared resource to be passed down from generation to generation and one of the essentials for people, the environment and a just, sustainable, and resilient economy. In recent years, citizens across different parts of the continent have faced a surge in natural disasters, such as droughts and floods, which have made EU's water challenges even more severe and triggered a new awareness about the need to ensure a water-resilient Europe. Pressures on water resources are not only due to the impacts of climate change, but also primarily to decades of structural mismanagement of this precious resource and to pollution and ecosystem degradation. But water resilience is not only a challenge for the EU. Worldwide, the water cycle is out of balance, closely intertwined with climate change and biodiversity loss, mutually further exacerbating each other. The 2024 EU Green Week is part of a wider communication campaign dedicated to the topic of water resilience. The objective is to stimulate an EU-wide conversation around the EU's water present and future, with an emphasis on fostering awareness and promoting positive, collaborative solutions. At the conference, guest speakers will discuss various aspects of integrated water management. This includes topics such as fostering a water smart economy within the EU, addressing the challenges of restoring and safeguarding the disrupted water cycle, ensuring widespread access to clean and affordable water and sanitation and international water cooperation. Conference registration will open in April and will be available via the Green Week website. Green Week partner events The conference will be accompanied by partner events, organised in Europe and beyond, under the shared header of water resilience. This year exceptionally, partner events can be organised beyond the Green Week period, starting from 29 May till 1 September 2024. If you are interested in organising an event/s that can engage citizens in water-related aspects and help foster a lively public conversation, please consult our guidelines and start preparing your event. The application period will be open between 4-17 March. Background EU Green Week is an annual opportunity to raise awareness, promote and discuss European environmental policy. Organised by the European Commission's Directorate-General for Environment, this high-level event attracts policymakers, leading environmentalists, stakeholders, and interested parties from across Europe and the globe.

Conferences and summits: RAN PRISONS - Practical methods and approaches to conducting multi-agency case conferences of violent extremist or terrorist offenders (VETOs)
Tuesday 4 June (12.00 - 17.30) and Wednesday 5 June 2024 (9.00 - 14.00), lunch to lunch Location TBD. RAN PRISONS Working Group is looking for participants with relevant expertise to take part in our next (and last) WG meeting on Practical methods and approaches to conducting multi-agency case conferences in relation to security-relevant VETO cases. Registration period ended on Friday 3 May 2024, 18:30 (CEST) Background and aim of the meeting During previous RAN PRISONS, RAN REHAB and other RAN meetings, multi-agency work is a prominent topic. Multi-agency work with VETOs in prison and post-release can be performed in different ways, as can be seen among different EU Member States. Variables include local context, duration of participation and involvement of state agencies. Case conferences aim to better multi-agency work by creating a space where all professionals working in the disengagement, deradicalisation and rehabilitation of the inmate discuss the case. This allows a holistic understanding of the processes and advancement of the inmate, and enables the sharing of information according to the possible legal framework. The use of case conferences aims towards better disengagement and rehabilitation of the VETO as well as prevention of recidivism. The goal of this meeting is to identify, examine and exchange good practices of designing, operating and evaluating multi-agency case conferences in relation to VETOs in prison, post-release and during the transition between the two.Key questions this meeting will address include: Who are the different stakeholders who should participate in multi-agency case management of VETOs and why? In what stages should each participate?Who is leading the case conferences and how can they be improved? What are the challenges?What is the role of the client in multi-agency case management?The outcome of the meeting and its conclusions will be shared with the policymakers of the Member States and might feed into the agenda of RAN Practitioners, RAN Policy Support (Member State policy makers and researchers) and the European Commission. It is an opportunity for practitioners to share their experience and voice their hopes and concerns for the future in a safe space protected by the Chatham House Rule. Ideal participants: The target audience for this meeting is practitioners who directly engage with VETOs in prison and post-release contexts (or aim to do so) in the field of P/CVE, including: prison management and administration staff. probation workers.practitioners who work with VETOs in prison or afterwards, including: mental health practitioners, religious counselors, exit workers, local administration staff, civil society organisations and law enforcement.Registration If you are interested in participating at this meeting, please fill out this form by 03 May. We will invite participants based on the information provided therein.
