This is the sixth and final workshop of the Initiative on Funding and Enabling P/CVE initiatives at the Community Level. The purpose of the sixth workshop is to continue the discussions on the recommendations on enabling and funding of Preventing and Countering Violent Extremism (P/CVE). P/CVE practitioners and policymakers shared experiences, building on lessons learned, to help draft a framework document of recommendations to help detect violent extremism quickly while respecting regional contexts, and identifying good emerging practices to strengthen responses at the community-level.
The Initiative, led by the CVE Working Group Co-Chairs, Australia and Indonesia, and supported by Global Community Engagement and Resilience Fund (GCERF) as implementing partner, is structured into six workshops each subsequently building on the other. The first two workshops focused on discussing the challenges of community-level P/CVE. The following two workshops focused on good practices when dealing with such challenges; and finally, the last two workshops were devoted to providing recommendations and to help draft a Framework Document.
The initiative is part of the CVE Working Group 2022-24 Work Plan. The CVE Working Group objectives include identifying solutions to overcome funding barriers to support community-level P/CVE interventions.
Bringing P/CVE practitioners and policymakers together helps to holding of deeper discussions around the challenges involved with community-level initiatives, and promotes the sharing of best practices. These can be tailored to local and national needs with the aim to strengthen the resilience of local communities and societies.
