National Conference: Multidisciplinary approach to the prevention of violent extremism and reintegration processes | Jan 23

23 January @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

The Institute for Democracy and Mediation (IDM) organizes the national conference “Multidisciplinary approach to the prevention of violent extremism and reintegration processes” which will be organized on January 23, at 10:00.

The conference focuses on the importance of the integrated multidisciplinary and multi-sector approach to the prevention of violent extremism (VEX), the provision of R&R services to returnees from conflict areas, and the increase of social cohesion. The experience so far has shown that an integrated approach at the local level would be effective not only in addressing traditional threats related to law enforcement and public safety, but also in preventing other negative phenomena such as radicalism and EDH. In this context, the Local Public Security Council (KVSP) has the potential to be one of the most efficient local mechanisms for addressing public security threats at the local level. At the same time, CSOs and frontline professionals at the local level play an important role in creating a safe environment for citizens as well as strengthening community resistance to negative phenomena.

This conference will serve as an opportunity for the exchange of experiences, positive practices and lessons learned between frontline professionals and local institutions regarding the strengthening of local multi-stakeholder mechanisms. Representatives of local and central institutions, senior officials of law enforcement institutions engaged in maintaining public order and security, representatives from KVSP, as well as CSOs and front-line professionals involved in reintegration processes are invited to participate in this conference.

This conference is organized within the program “Sustainable community-based reintegration of Albanian nationals returning from Syria”, implemented by the Institute for Democracy and Mediation in cooperation with the Observatory for Children and Youth Rights and the Women’s Center for Development and Culture in Albania, under the national coordination of the Coordination Center Against Violent Extremism, with the support of Global Community Engagement and Resilience Fund (GCERF).
