Cluj Collaborates No. 6 | Colaborarea Clujeană Nr. 6

Cluj Collaborates or Colaborarea Clujeană is a magazine by, about and for Cluj. It was created to make visible the amazing work that is being done by organisations, institutions and individuals across the community, and to celebrate and inspire creativity, collaboration, and practical engagements to make a difference in the lives of Clujeni.

Cluj Collaborates is a magazine for all the people of Cluj. We hope to make us all: aware of the exciting, very often inspiring, and great work being done by so many different people and sectors in Cluj; identify issues and challenges which are important to us to address to improve quality of life and wellbeing of the people of Cluj; create connections and inspire collaboration, solutions-oriented approaches, and future initiatives, doing more together than can be done apart.

Collaboration is in the name in and everything that Cluj Collaborates is about. Collaboration within and across sectors, institutions, and our community as a whole.

Cluj Collaborates was born from the Cluj Roundtables organized by the Romanian Peace Institute – PATRIR in cooperation with the Cluj City Hall and bringing together public institutions, local government authorities, NGOs, civic and cultural institutions, universities, schools, companies and more.

Today, Cluj Collaborates is published in Romanian and English. We hope with our next edition to be in Hungarian as well. The publication is free and distributed online.

We want to thank all partners who have contributed to this edition! If you wish for your initiatives, events, projects or publications to be featured in the next edition send us an email at [email protected]

Polarisation, radicalisation and discrimination with focus on Central and Eastern Europe

The polarisation of society has now become a buzzword that is hardly missing from any political analysis. Trump, the Brexit, migration and the flight movement from the South to Europe, which has almost been pushed into the background again, also globalisation and climate change, and the Corona pandemic, which has been going on for a year now … In all these topic areas, a very fundamental polarisation of positionings is indeed emerging, which overshadows intermediate tones.

The focus of the issue on “Polarisation, Radicalisation and Discrimination in Europe” focuses in particular on the situation in Central and Eastern Europe in the practice of prevention and intervention in the field of democracy education, group-focused enmity and right-wing extremism. Contributors to this issue include those who have been working on-the-ground in the countries, as members of civil society organisations with a sharp and trained eye; those who work in municipalities, schools and extracurricular education as “fighters on the front line” (first-line practitioners, FLPs for short, e.g. teachers, social workers, NGOs, police) on a daily basis in regular structures, in training courses, and workshops as well as in counselling; and have in-depth insights and experience of the challenges, barriers and attempts at solutions.

The articles were written for the German journal Demokratie gegen Menschenfeindlichkeit.

This special issue has been produced within the Champions Project.

European Baseline report on current Organised Crime and Terrorist Networks specifics and collection of sources

As part of the project TAKEDOWN, our colleagues from FUNDEA have developed a European Baseline Report on organised crime and terrorism intended to set analytical fundamentals for the project. The report highlights the explanatory power and the deficits of existing models to tackle organised crime and terrorism, whilst comparing different approaches, strategies and policies related to these phenomena.

We in PATRIR as members of the TAKEDOWN consortium have been very active in this process, giving input and expertise when needed to. We appreciate and salut the efforts of FUNDEA and all the partners who collaborated in this report to shed some light on the European and international OC/TN landscape in terms of stakeholders, representatives, responses and solutions. From PATRIR, we consider this work crucial in terms of moving towards evidence-based policy making and programming.
