Join DME for Peace on Thursday, September 26th at 10am EDT, as Dallin Van Leuven of Search for Common Ground, joins the M&E Thursday Talks to lead a discussion on “Countering Violent Extremism: An Introductory Guide to Concepts, Programming, and Best Practices.”
Despite the recent growth of the countering violent extremism (CVE) field of practice, there has not yet been a publicly accessible training curriculum that offers a comprehensive introduction to this unique and sensitive approach. To address these gaps, Search and Hedayah have developed a culturally-literate training package aimed at raising awareness of CVE approaches.
The curriculum focuses on the benefits of collaborative approaches to violent extremism, beyond the use of military and other securitized responses. Dallin Van Leuven will share insights from the curriculum, in addition to exploring some of the best practices highlighted. Dallin will also discuss how the training was accurately translated into multiple languages, and why it is important to make CVE approaches culturally sensitive and easily adaptable to local contexts.
