On 9 November 2017, as part of Geneva Peace Week, the Geneva Centre for Security Policy (GCSP), in association with the Global Community Engagement and Resilience Fund (GCERF), the International Civil Society Action Network/Women’s Alliance for Security Leadership (ICAN/WASL), and the United Nations Development Programme Oslo Governance Centre, hosted an event to explore how PVE National Action Plans can achieve an all-of-society approach, and how to support civil society for effective design and implementation.
The event paid particular attention to the undervalued contributions of women and youth to PVE, with examples from the Nigerian government and civil society.
The report is now available in full on the Platform for the Prevention of Violent Extremism (PVE), an initiative created by the GCSP and the Federal Department of Foreign Affairs of Switzerland to support the engagement and online collaboration of practitioners actively working on PVE -- especially those in Africa and the Middle East.
The platform, designed to engage civil society, local NGOs, IOs, governments and researchers, offers an interactive space for members to engage in dialogue and discussion. The platform also informs members on upcoming PVE events and maintains a links library on PVE related issues.
