Preventing and Countering Violent Extremism: National Experiences and Best Practice

December 03th, 2015, GCSP, Maison de la Paix, Geneva.



Presentation of the Policy Dialogue by His Excellency Mohamed AUAJJAR, Ambassador, Permanent Representative of the Kingdom of Morocco.

Preventing and Countering Violent Extremism (P/CVE) has become a global issue by excellence on the multilateral agenda, and in particular in the United Nations. Since the Washington Summit held on February 19th 2015, a series of regional meetings have been held in all continents to set a dialogue on ways and means to Counter Violent Extremism, as well as to deepen the understanding for an integrated approach for its prevention and for resilience.

This international dynamic was further strengthened with the Leaders' Summit on Countering ISIL and Violent Extremism, held in New York on September 29th 2015, in the United Nations. In this context, and in view of the prominence and growing interest for this issue from academia, think tanks and civil society, States have started to develop national strategies to Counter Violent Extremism.

The Policy Dialogue organized by the Permanent Mission of the Kingdom of Morocco in Geneva on December 3rd 2015 at the Geneva Centre for Security Policy (GCSP) aimed to examine national experiences in Preventing and Countering Violent Extremism and to exchange, among policy makers and practitioners, Best Practices emerging at the local, national and regional levels.

The Policy Dialogue witnessed the participation of some thirty Ambassadors representing different regions, 10 Think Tanks active in P/CVE (GCSP, GCERF, Hedayah, Prince Mohammed Bin Naif Centre for Treatment and Advice, Universal Rights Group) as well as members of the academic community. Some seventy persons have participated in this important event which stands as a testimony for the interest in furthering the P/CVE agenda in Geneva.
