Axis 4: Federal public strategies

The federal government deploys it competencies by means of public policies that organise and/or regulate the life of its citizens and its own functioning. We have in mind public policies applied by the federal public services such as Foreign Affairs, the Interior, the Economy, Public Health & Environment, Social Security, Defence, Employment, and Justice… like in any modern state, the organization and monitoring of these policies relies on scientific results among other input. This thematic area aims to finance the activities and support of the competencies of the Federal Authorities, from a perspective that is historical, contemporary and prospective. Priority will be given to issues that touch upon multiple areas of federal competency and which offer a coherent and complementary framework for the research conducted by the departments in order to minimize the fragmentation of the research.

The topics of research will be based on the strategic orientations of Belgian policy.

    • 27-02-2019 - Conference
      The radicalisation machine:
      Why “radicalisation” is a problematic concept

      The term “radicalisation” is a fairly recent addition to the political vocabulary. It appeared for the first time in a policy document in 2004, when it became clear that, contrary to earlier Islam-inspired attacks, the perpetrators in the Madrid bombings were “home-grown terrorists.” Since then an impressive number of de- and counter-radicalisation policies have been devised, aimed at local Muslim communities. This is remarkable, if not only because the concept itself is highly contested in research and little empirical evidence exists. In the dominant use in media and policy and in the current research state of the art, “radicalisation” is characterised by terminological impurity, a lack of comparison with other and historical forms of extremism, a one-dimensional, teleological understanding of the process and an over-emphasis of individual, psychological and religious factors, obscuring the role of social environments and the responsibility of broader society and of the state. It is in this problematic context that de- and counter-radicalisation policies and programmes are launched with self-evidence. In that same context researchers as well as local organisations are forced to subscribe to project calls echoing the dominant but problematic take on “radicalisation”. This conference has as objective to discuss the problematic nature of the concept itself as well as the effects such a superficial or misguided understanding of “radicalisation” can have on local, often stigmatised and controlled communities. The BELSPO-funded CONRAD research team kindly invites you to this one-day seminar of reflection and discussion, involving both researchers and practitioners working on a daily basis with vulnerable groups.
