European Expert Network on Terrorism Issues (EENeT) - Focussing Radicalisation June 2014 - Mai 2016.
Despite EENeT's relatively short history, the network has already developed and established several channels and procedures for networking:
- Notice-Board: All members may send information or requests about ongoing studies, research questions, conferences and any other relevant information referring to the phenomenon of terrorism to the EENeT Administrative Office, where the messages are gathered and disseminated to all members through sporadically sent Notice Boards.
- Website: The Internet platform may also be used to place relevant information for longer periods.
- Contact Lists: The Administrative Office disseminates within the network lists with contact details of the EENeT members, so that the members may also maintain contact at bilateral level.
- Sub-Groups: The members may team up EENeT subgroups, to discuss and work on specific issues within smaller working groups.
