Geneva Peace Week emphasizes that each and every person, actor and institution has a role to play in building peace and resolving conflict. It recognizes that peacebuilding occurs in many different contexts and cuts across disciplines and sectors. In this sense, Geneva Peace Week breaks down professional silos in order to enable creative responses to violence, exclusion and insecurity.

Design a Comprehensive Approach to Preventing Violent Extremism

This course offers a unique opportunity to unpack the process of formulating a strategy for preventing and countering violent extremism. It examines the implications of UN Security Council Resolution 2178 for those involved in developing national plans to prevent and counter violent extremism (PVE/CVE). It also analyses root causes of violent radicalism and studies the methods used to promote violent extremist ideologies. Participants will examine the phenomena of foreign terrorist fighters and strategic communications. Experts and participants work together to develop new ideas for the most effective PVE/CVE practices.

Who Should Attend 

Open to mid-career professionals working in national ministries and international organisations, as well as: 

  • individuals and representatives of organisations implementing programmes on the ground
  • development agencies in countries experiencing violent extremism
  • community-based organisations conducting CVE/PVE activities
  • private sector professionals and national officials from countries afflicted by radicalisation
