Peace Direct Call for Applications: Identifying Peacebuilding Approaches to Countering Violent Extremism

Deadline: 27 March 2017

Peace Direct has launched a collaborative research project for experts and practitioners in Countering Violent Extremism (CVE). The project will bring together people with knowledge and experiences from a diverse range of contexts to share best practices and develop new approaches.

The consultations will take place online, using Convetit, an innovative platform for bringing together experts. The consultation will last 5 days online. After the online consultation is complete, Peace Direct will coordinate the writing up of the findings, in consultation with participants.

The online consultation will take place from April 3 – 7, 2017.

Broad Areas

The research will cover CVE as it relates to three broad areas:

  • Prevention: why do people join violent extremist groups, and what strategies are available for countering extremist messages?
  • De-radicalisation: what best practices exist for changing the minds of those involved in violent groups, and how do we help those that wish to leave?
  • Reintegration and reconciliation: what comes after involvement in violent extremism?
