The #GlobalConsensus will be produced and launched during the Madrid+10 Global Policy Dialogue on Preventing and Countering Violent Extremism (Madrid, 27-28 October), as an authoritative policy recommendation on confronting and preventing radicalization and violent extremism wherever it happens.
More than 250 high level experts and policy makers, including 40 Club de Madrid Members, all of them democratically elected former Prime Ministers and Presidents, are expected to sign the outcome of the Madrid+10 Policy Dialogue: a document titled #GlobalConsensus, a statement of principles with the aim of creating unity and fostering leadership in the fight against violent extremism
Based on the work of leading experts and the insight and experience of Club de Madrid members, it seeks to facilitate a global response that is both smart and realistic, as well as create commitment and partnership among political leaders and civil society around the world.
Following its presentation, the #GlobalConsensuswill be available on the Madrid+10 online platform where different interlocutors and partners can read and sign on to it, sustaining the commitment and engaging in a debate on how its principles can be translated into policies, strategies and measures.
This #GlobalConsensus will be signed by Club de Madrid Members, experts, policy makers, civil society organizations and international institutions all over the world.
In addition, a social media campaign will be launched focused on the official hashtag of the Madrid+10 Policy Dialogue: #GlobalConsensus. This hashtag will capitalize on social media discussions and bring attention to the document, aimed at serving as a benchmark, resource and source of inspiration to political leaders on how to respond to the daunting challenge of radicalization and violent extremism.
