This website spotlights some of the EU’s work on C/PVE in three focus areas: developing local solutions, people that make a difference and new approaches.
People that make a difference
Stories that look at efforts to bring people together, or to empower specific groups to strengthen resilience to VE.
- Listening to young people
- Getting everyone around the table
- Women showing the way
- Amplifying alternative voices
Developing local solutions
Stories that show the importance of understanding local contexts, and of working with local actors to build C/PVE capacity and create new opportunities.
It is important to note that the projects on this website were not chosen because they are the ‘biggest’ in terms of money or numbers of people. They are simply a handful of examples of the exceptional work being done under the STRIVE programme by our partners around the world to counter and prevent VE. We hope they will bring to life the value of this work for local communities and the individuals who live there.
Preventing and countering violent extremism will continue to be a crucial aspect of the European Union’s approach to counterterrorism. You can find out more about the EU’s continued actions in this article.
This website is based on the brochure Preventing and Countering Violent Extremism – Stories from the EU’s work around the globe.
