The European Foundation for Democracy, in partnership with the U.S. Embassy to Belgium, is pleased to invite you to an exchange of views with Christian Picciolini. His work will provide insights into the factors contributing to the growth of far-right extremism in Europe.
Christian Picciolini is an award-winning television producer, a public speaker, author, peace advocate, and a former violent extremist. Christian’s involvement in, and exit from the early American white-supremacist skinhead movement is chronicled in his memoir White American Youth. He now leads the Free Radicals Project, a global extremism prevention and disengagement network, and has helped over 300 individuals leave hate behind. This work is spotlighted in his MSNBC documentary series Breaking Hate. His forthcoming book, Breaking Hate: Confronting the New Culture of Extremism, will be released on 25th February 2020.
This is a public event and this invitation is personal to you or a
representative designated by you from your organisation.
