“Roots and Routes of Democracy and Extremism –


A broad based dialogue on the development of democracy and extremism in countries with large Muslim populations”.


Within this process of European and American institutions the most recent meeting of thirty scientists, engineers, analysts, and other security-oriented specialists from six countries took place in December 10-12, 2018, in Helsinki, Finland.


This workshop focused on the convergence of violent extremism and radiological security. Discussions focused on regional and national trends, particularly in politically unstable areas where extremists and disenfranchised groups could access radiological sources and use these sources as weapons of terrorism.


This was the third international workshop in which Hellenberg was working with the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine concerning global concerns about the activities and intentions of individuals or dissident organizations that threaten security in a number of countries.
