Annual International CVE Research Conference
The Conference provides a platform for the latest, cutting-edge CVE research, and to facilitate a discussion around CVE policy, programming, and research.
The Annual International Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) Conference convenes CVE researchers, practitioners, and policymakers to share the most current, up-to-date research and analysis of CVE on an international scale, and provides a platform for network members to meet and share good practices on drivers of radicalization and effective solutions.
- Enhance the network of P/CVE researchers and policy-makers to share their research and best practices and to contribute to further connectedness of the P/CVE community;
- Identify and present the latest evidence-based research among the P/CVE community;
- Provide a space for researchers and practitioners to jointly identify trends and needs for on-the-ground implementation, prepare the ground for further research, and form collaborations on emerging areas of work; and
- Seek to turn theoretical knowledge and research on P/CVE into a coherent and practical implementation system.
