Countering Violent Extremism by Refocusing on Communities
Join United States Institute of Peace for an event co-hosted with the RESOLVE Network and the Institute for Security Studies (ISS) that will examine the role of non-state actors and local communities in preventing the spread of violent extremism. Drawing on research from RESOLVE’s Africa portfolio and ISS’s research, leading experts will offer alternative pathways for conflict resolution that account for local peacebuilding challenges—as well as consider the pivotal role of women in community-based justice, conflict resolution, and the rule of law.
