Nouveau projet participatif WeMixBrussels

Au cours des années 2019-2020, Socaba a mené une enquête sur la polarisation sociale commissionnée par Bruxelles Prévention et Sécurité (BPS) sur l’ensemble des communes de la région bruxelloise,

« Cartographie de la polarisation à Bruxelles » était la première étude de cette ampleur qui analyse la polarisation à Bruxelles, en se penchant sur les perceptions des individus. Plus précisément, elle a adressé la question suivante : Les tensions perçues par les Bruxellois peuvent-elles engendrer des phénomènes de distanciation ou de conflit et influencer leur comportement ?

Avec une méthodologie scientifique solide, la sélection aléatoire sur l’ensemble de la géographie de la Région bruxelloise a produit une image détaillée et statistiquement valide pour chacune des 19 communes. Début 2020, Socaba a envoyé un rapport détaillé avec les résultats de l’étude et des recommandations à Bruxelles Prévention et aux 19 communes bruxelloises.

WeMixBrussels

Dans le suivi du projet de recherche, Socaba a lancé fin 2021 « WeMixBrussels » pour sensibiliser à la polarisation à Bruxelles et donner de la visibilité aux solutions qui renforcent la cohésion sociale.

Avec ce projet, nous voulons informer les Bruxellois sur les risques des divisions existantes et mettre en lumière les opportunités de créer une société plus inclusive. Nous racontons des histoires convaincantes sur les initiatives déjà en cours et sur la manière dont chacun peut faire une différence positive.

WeMixBrussels relie les citoyens, la société civile et le niveau politique sur le thème de la polarisation. Nous travaillons avec les Bruxellois et les Asbl locales pour créer des vidéos et du contenu pour les médias sociaux. Le projet est financé par Bruxelles Prévention et Sécurité.

WeMixBrussels, een nieuw participatief project

In 2019-2020 heeft Socaba vzw in opdracht van Brussel Preventie en Veiligheid (BPV) in alle 19 gemeenten van het Brussels Hoofdstedelijk Gewest (BHG) een onderzoek uitgevoerd over polarisatie

 “Een cartografie van polarisatie in Brussel” is, zover wij weten, de eerste studie van deze omvang die polarisatie in het BHG en specifiek de percepties van individuen analyseert. Met behulp van dit onderzoek trachtte Socaba antwoord te geven op de volgende vraag: Kunnen problemen gerelateerd aan polarisatie die door Brusselaars ervaren worden hun sociaal gedrag beïnvloeden leiden tot distantiëring en/of conflicten?  

Begin 2020 heeft Socaba een gedetailleerd rapport met aanbevelingen naar BPV en de 19 gemeenten gestuurd.

Op deze pagina vind je meer informatie over dit onderzoek. 

WeMixBrussels

Als vervolg op het onderzoeksproject lanceerde Socaba eind 2021 WeMixBrussels om polarisatie in Brussel onder de aandacht te brengen en zichtbaarheid te geven aan initiatieven die sociale cohesie vergroten.
Met dit project willen we de Brusselaars informeren over de risico’s van bestaande verdeeldheid en de kansen belichten om een meer inclusieve samenleving te creëren. We vertellen overtuigende verhalen over waar verandering nodig is, welke initiatieven al plaatsvinden en hoe iedereen een positief verschil kan maken.

WeMixBrussels verbindt burgers, het maatschappelijk middenveld en het politieke niveau rond het thema polarisatie. We werken samen met de inwoners van Brussel en lokale vzw’s om video’s en inhoud voor sociale media te creëren. Het project wordt gefinancierd door Bruxelles Prevention et Securité.

A follow-up of Mapping Polarisation in Brussels’

 In 2019-2020, Socaba conducted a survey commissioned by Brussels Prevention and Security (BPS) in all municipalities in the Brussels region, (i.e. the 19 municipalities), on social polarisation.

Mapping Polarisation in Brussels’ is the first study on this scale to analyse polarisation in Brussels by looking at people’s perceptions. More specifically, it addressed the following question: Can the tensions related to polarisation perceived by Brussels residents lead to distancing or conflict and how does the perception of the tensions influence their behaviour?  Using a sound scientific approach – random selection in the entire territory of the Brussels Region – the research produced a detailed and statistically valid picture for each of the 19 municipalities.

At the beginning of 2020, Socaba sent a detailed report with the results of the study and recommendations to Brussels Prevention and the 19 Brussels municipalities.

WeMixBrussels 

As a follow up of the research project, Socaba launched WeMixBrussels at the end of 2021 to raise awareness about polarisation in Brussels and to give visibility to solutions that increase social cohesion.

With this project, we aim to inform the people of Brussels about the risks of existing divisions and to highlight opportunities to create a more inclusive society. We tell compelling stories about where change is needed, which initiatives are already taking place, and how everyone can make a positive difference.

WeMixBrussels connects citizens, civil society and the political level on the topic of polarisation. We work together with the people of Brussels and local Asbls to create videos and social media content. The project is funded by Bruxelles Prevention et Securité.

Reinforcing post-prison support

Organising a coordinated approach at the regional level to ensure a smooth transition back into society

This action-research project is about strengthening the reintegration network for people who went through detention for having committed or participated in acts of terrorism, or having been suspected of radicalisation. At a moment where the strategies and practices of local actors of preventive and follow-up care have been stabilized, Socaba aims to reinforce the coordination between them and to develop an expertise based on the experience of reintegration from the ex-detained themselves, as well as their families. We aim to develop resources and tools for practitioners as well as for the people going through the reintegration process, and their families.

In order to facilitate a smoother coordination by practitioners, Socaba’s team is collecting the experiences, needs and suggestions from a wide range of both involved and potentially involved actors. This project is organised in three phases. The interviews carried out in the first phase will feed into a report describing the current state of play, mapping out the different services currently available, what they offer, and the links between them. The second phase will develop tools, trainings and resources stemming from the findings of the first one. In the final phase, these trainings and resources will be made available and meetings will be organised for the exchange of best practices between concerned practitioners. The project is funded by “Brussels Prevention and Security” (BPS).
