On 9 March 2017, the European Foundation for Democracy, in cooperation with the Counter Extremism Project (CEP), hosted a policy briefing entitled: “Fostering resilience towards radicalization: How can vulnerable communities be empowered?”. Throughout the discussion, experts commented on the parallel societies phenomenon, analyzing the example of Shari’a courts in the UK, and putting forward recommendations on how to tackle this specific issue.
