While it has become a global cause for concern, violent extremism disproportionately affects people and communities in fragile and conflictaffected states. Yet, existing power asymmetries mean that those communities often have a limited say in setting government and donor agendas, policies and programmes to counter and prevent these threats. This is one important, yet overlooked, reason why programmes aimed at preventing violent extremism have struggled to maximise their impact in the Sahel.
In an interactive session, speakers will discuss current challenges faced in addressing and preventing violent extremism, while proposing new ways to define what "success” looks like in C/PVE programmes.
