Never Again Association

The Never Again Association is a Polish and Eastern European antiracist organisation. The mission of the Never Again Association is to promote multicultural understanding and to contribute to the development of a democratic civil society in Poland and in the broader region of Central and Eastern Europe. Never Again is particularly concerned with the problem of education against racial and ethnic prejudices among the young. Activities of Never Again include: - Social campaigning and educational programmes. - Monitoring and publishing data on racist incidents and other xenophobic crimes committed in Poland as well as sharing information and analysis on hate crime and extremist and racist groups operating in Poland and in the rest of Europe. - Sharing expertise and cooperating with researchers, media, policy makers, national and international organisations. - Running of the 'Delete Racism' project to combat racism and antiSemitism on the Internet and conducting high-profile educational campaigns in the field of popular culture, 'Music Against Racism' and 'Let's Kick Racism out of the Stadiums'. - UEFA EURO 2012 'Respect Diversity – Football Unites' programme: major educational and awareness-raising activities that took place before and during the European Football Championships in Poland and Ukraine. The Never Again practitioners come from various professional backgrounds as political and social studies, social work, legal, educational. A particularly promising aspect of the Never Again approach is combining work on many different levels - international networking alongside domestic and local projects, integration of football work and general societal work, collaborating simultaneously with other NGOs, risk groups, policy makers and practitioners, as well as with local and national authorities. Such approach combined with Never Again's broad network of volunteers across the whole country and the region enables the Association to diagnose and respond quickly to any issues that may come up within the scope of its work. At present, Never Again is approaching the field of prison work and has already become a reference point for those involved in deradicalisation work. The Association provides help with regards to carrying out first-line work, as well as advises on how to approach and deal with extremists and hate crime offenders. The Association also broadly promotes implementation of best practices regarding both combating racism and hate crime, as well as promoting a positive, inclusive public discourse on multiculturalism and diversity.

The establishing of the Government Centre for Security constitutes a significant step in building an effective and comprehensive system of crisis management – a system thanks to which it will be possible to prevent crises and, in case of their occurrance, to minimize their impact by taking professional actions.
Government Centre for Security is a supraministerial structure which aims to optimize and standardize the perception of threats by individual government departments, thereby increasing the degree of ability to cope with difficult situations by the competent services and public administration authorities.
The establishing of the Government Centre for Security will help to organize the functioning of the units responsible for crisis management, created pursuant to the provisions governing the functioning of public administration authorities in the event of natural disasters.
Conducting a comprehensive risk analysis, based on the data obtained from all possible ‘crisis centres’ within the public administration as well as based on the data from international partners, is considered to be the main and basic task of the Government Centre for Security.
In addition, developing optimal solutions to the emerging crisis situations as well as the coordination of the flow of information concerning the threats are also within the scope of the tasks of the Government Centre for Security.

The remaining tasks of the Centre are the following:

  • compiling the catalogue of threats;
  • monitoring of the potential threats;
  • launching of the crisis management procedures at the national level;
  • implementation of the planning and programming tasks in the field of crisis management and critical infrastructure protection;
  • supervision over the consistency of the crisis response procedures;
  • organising, conducting and coordination of crisis management trainings and exercises as well as participation in national and international exercises;
  • preventing, counteracting and removing the consequences of terrorist acts;
  • international cooperation with the entities and organisational units of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and the European Union in the field of crisis management.

The Centre shall ensure services to the Council of Ministers, Prime Minister, the Government Crisis Management Team and a minister competent for internal affairs within the scope of crisis management. Moreover, the Centre serves as a national centre for crisis management.
Government Centre for Security has been operating since the 2nd August 2008.
It was established under the Act of 26 April 2007 on Crisis Management (article 10). Currently, the organizational structure and operating mode of the Centre is regulated by a Regulation of the Prime Minister of 11 April 2011 on the organisation and operating mode of the Government Centre for Security.
