Counter-terrorism

Violent extremism remains a complex threat to our security. Tackling radicalisation is not only a policy issue, but an issue that youth can be at the forefront of addressing in their own communities. Through the lens of youth empowerment, parties are engaging in counter-radicalization programs and countering radical narratives.
How can we promote youth participation to ensure processes are contextualized to the needs and interests of the youth themselves?
