Towards an inclusive peace

Tackling different forms of violent extremism


Isolation, fear and misunderstanding create a fertile ground for extremist views and discourses to take root, often leading to different levels of violence. Experience has shown that by reaching out, these dangerous extremist narratives can be challenged and eventually shifted towards peaceful coexistence.

This event will enable influential NGO leaders, government representatives, business people, victims and ex-perpetrators to explore the different issues involved in bringing together top-down and bottom-up approaches and discuss practical tools and strategies that will help counter these extremist narratives.

Participants will be encouraged to think of community-based indicators that can measure progress and help them make better decisions about how to deal with the problem in the future. So come and learn how to challenge extremes in a holistic manner, and build better ways to create an inclusive, peaceful community.
