Lore Colaert is a researcher at the Flemish Peace Institute, an independent research institute within the Flemish Parliament, dedicated to peace research. She edited the book ‘De-radicalisation’, Scientific insights for policy that will be published at the end of 2017. The Peace Institute conducts scientific research, documents relevant issues, makes recommendations to the Flemish Parliament, and provides information to the Flemish Parliament, civil society, and the public about peace and the prevention of violence. Lore forms part of the research group ‘conflict and violence in society’ where she focuses on ‘radicalisation’, in particular on the local and regional policy responses to this phenomenon. Previously, she studied history and did a PhD at Ghent University on how Spanish citizens deal with the painful memories of the Spanish Civil War and Francoist dictatorship.
