Capabilities of the Visegrad Group in Preventing Extremism”,

We represent 4 independent human rights organizations, whose international mandates cover work across Europe and beyond, working with some of the world’s most marginalized peoples. We are also, all registered entities in Hungary and are proud members of Hungarian civil society. We consider the current draft law on NGOs, which singles out civil society organizations receiving funding from outside Hungary, to be both undermining our future operations as international human rights organisations.

Preventing radicalisation and extreme trends is a common concern across the Visegrad region as extremism, if not engaged, can lead to the disruption of community cohesion and the incitement of violence against minority groups. Since the prevention of extremism requires a systemic effort, it is of crucial importance not only to improve the preventive capabilities of States, but also to develop resilience and skills within societies, at both national and regional levels.
