In July 2010, the Council of the European Union decided to create a network bringing together foreign
policy institutions and research centres from across the EU to encourage political and security-related dialogue
and the long-term discussion of measures to combat the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) and their
delivery systems. The EU Non-Proliferation Consortium is managed jointly by four institutes entrusted with the project,
in close cooperation with the representative of the High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy.
The FRS is advising the Security and Defence Committee (SEDE) of the European Parliament through studies and
workshops on major relevant international topics, in association with the following partners: Chatham House (United Kingdom),
SIPRI (Sweden), CIDOB (Spain), ELIAMEP (Greece), HIIA (Hungary), GRIP (Belgium), MEDAC (Malta),
and with the support of researchers Alessandro Politi, Christian Mölling and Claudia Major.
The FRS has been tasked by the Council of the European Union with conducting a series of activities to support and promote the
Hague Code of Conduct against ballistic missile proliferation (HCoC). This text aims at fostering transparency and confidence
in the area of ballistic missiles and space launchers. To this end, the FRS organises various conferences and missions, including
with States that have not yet subscribed to the HCoC. The detail of all the actions conducted by the FRS as part of this project is
available on the website of the Non-Proliferation Consortium.
IMPACT Europe is aimed to fill the gap in knowledge and understanding of ‘what works’ in tackling violent extremism -- largely defined and limited to jihadism, mostly in Eurpe and America.The outcome of IMPACT Europe improves and empowers counter-violent-radicalisation policies and interventions across Europe.
This H2020 European, multipartners program is aimed to systematize the available knowledge and expertise with innovative, ethical and robust approaches against different forms of radicalisation. It will contribute to such goal in the countries represented in the consortium (Austria, Belgium Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy Poland, Spain and United Kingdom). All actions will be developed in 5 specific domains: prisons and judiciary system; migration hotspots and asylum centres, schools, cities (peri-urban contexts) and the Internet and media. A special contribution of the project will be the integration of technology based practical solutions with the contribution of the industry.
The project aligns its research priorities with some of the most relevant issues already identified by the European Commission.
