Welcome to Training Module 1 On Discovering Community Vulnerability and Resilience Factors in Preventing and Addressing Violent Extremism
Welcome to Training Module 1 of the Preventing and Addressing Violent Extremism (PAVE) project focused on providing you with findings regarding vulnerability and resilience factors discovered from the PAVE project. This site is offered to you by the PAVE (Preventing and Addressing Violent Extremism through Community Resilience in the Western Balkans and the MENA) project in cooperation with the Finn Church Aid (FCA and the Network for Religious and Traditional Peacemakers).
The PAVE project is a EU-funded Horizon 2020 research project that has conducted studies in the Western Balkans and the Middle East, with the selected municipalities of Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH), Serbia, Kosovo, North Macedonia (NMK), Iraq, Lebanon and Tunisia. The project focuses on the community-level socio-political dynamics, providing insights on how local communities are impacting, and impacted by, violent extremism. This training combines the empirical insights and findings from a set of field-based studies carried out within the context of the PAVE project.
In this course, participants will acquire knowledge of the basic vulnerability and community resilience factors, as well as of basic concepts and key practices/approaches of preventing and countering violent extremism (P/CVE) identified in the PAVE research to support their learning. This course will also provide a basis for your learning for all of the other PAVE training modules.
After completing the course, you can download and print your course training certificate.
