How are Inclusive Approaches Working to Prevent and Counter Violent Extremism?

There has been much discussion on the importance of fostering inclusion of traditionally marginalized populations to prevent and counter violent extremism (CVE). There is wide recognition that efforts to engage at-risk youth are crucial to this effort. But, are they working? Are they addressing the sense of exclusion and isolation that drive many young people to extremist groups? 

The need to engage women and girls in preventing and countering violent extremism has also been increasingly explored and integrated into CVE programming. What approaches to integrating women and girls in preventing violent extremism have been most effective? What needs to be addressed to prevent women and girls from participating and supporting violent extremist groups?  

Our panel comprised of Pakistani civil society leader Maryam Bibi, OTI Transition Advisor Sara Reckless, and others will share what their organizations have learned from implementing and analyzing programs and initiatives that seek to foster inclusion to prevent and counter violent extremism.

Please note that registration for this event will close at 4:00 PM on Sunday, June 17th.
