Debating Security Plus: From global to local

About

Friends of Europe is delighted to be partnering with the WANA Institute for the local launch of the 2017 Debating Security Plus (DS+) report in Amman, Jordan.

DS+ is an unique global online brainstorm which gathers thousands of participants from the world of peace, security and defence—and beyond—to develop sustainable solutions to some of the biggest security problems facing the world today. Its report sets out 10 top recommendations addressing practical policy goals and shifts in security thinking, underpinned by a realistic roadmap for implementation.

The workshop will focus on the 6th recommendation of the DS+ report, which advises to “think small to prevent and counter radicalisation strategies”, and the 8th recommendation, which argues for the need to “develop proactive and coordinated responses to countering disinformation campaigns”, applying them to the Jordanian context.

The results of the workshop will be reflected in a policy paper on the challenges and opportunities of carrying out these two recommendations in Jordan.
